Papa Stronsay: Signed and Sealed

You've probably seen it posted elsewhere but the religious community on the Scottish isle of Papa Stronsay who follow in the footsteps of St Alphonsus Liguouri have at long last been fully regularized and erected as a community of diocesan right:

I, Hugh Gilbert, O.S.B, by the grace of God Bishop of Aberdeen, decree that the community known as the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer, be erected as a Religious Institute of Diocesan right in accordance with c 579 of the Code of Canon Law 1983. The Institute will be subject to all other applicable norms of the said code and governed by the statutes of the said community previously approved by the Holy See.
