St. Michael's Youth Conference--Southwest
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.
