"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

St. Michael's Youth Conference--Southwest

Calling all Anglo-Catholic youth of the greater Southwestern United States--St. Michael wants you! This is a great opportunity for young people to grow in "the Faith once delivered to the saints" under the guidance of learned and devout orthodox priests and lay people. I hope it will not be missed. Here is how Fr. Lee Nelson describes it:

St. Michael's Conference has been described as Anglo-Catholic Boot Camp for youth. It includes daily Solemn Mass (boys in ties, girls in skirts), the Divine Offices, and rigorous academic classwork. The Michaelites, as they are called, are encouraged to make their confessions and begin a deep life of devotion to Our Lord in the Sacraments and the Church. In short, it is not "church camp." It is thorn in the side of Satan and the Angel's of Hell. Secularism, relativism, and the infectious nihilism of youth culture are attempting to claim our youth. St. Michael's Conference is a way to snatch youth from their grip.

Thanks to the outstanding organizational work of Fr. Christopher Cantrell and Mr. Charles Warnky, both of the diocese of Fort Worth, St. Michael's Southwest will begin on June 4th (the feast of Pentecost) this year. The event will take place at our fine diocesan retreat center near Granbury, Texas, Camp Crucis. Please do check out the St. Michael's web site and consider sending your parish's youth to this superb retreat.

Thanks for the primo promo! Camp Crucis is just outside Granbury, just to pick a nit.

Sorry, Father. The correction has been made. Don't know what I was thinking. Glen Rose is surely 15 miles away.
