Rome, September 26, 2005. On the Feast of the Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary, September 8, the Holy See, through the Congregation for Catholic Education, granted the Legion of Christ the decree approving the Statutes of the Maria Mater Ecclesiae Center for Priests in Rome. They likewise issued a decree naming Fr. Javier García, L.C. as rector.

So that priests can more easily dedicate themselves to their studies and effectively learn the methods of evangelization and apostolate, the Second Vatican Council recommended “the setting up of centers designed for pastoral studies” (Presbyterorum Ordinis, 19).
