Upcoming Events

October 11-15 Annual Fatima Conference — Theme: Fatima and Perseverance. (See PDF of printed flyer here.) Join us in honoring Our Lady in a special way on this 100th anniversary of her apparitions at Fatima. Online registration now available. We plan to go all-out to make this year’s Candlelight Procession the most glorious we’ve ever had. Even if you are not able to come, you may send a rose or roses so that we can surround Our Lady’s statue with as many roses as possible! Rooms are almost sold out, but we have made arrangements at a nearby hotel to accommodate guests for the same registration fee.

Reclaiming a Hijacked Priesthood: Fr. Michael Oswalt speaks of his experiences in a VII seminary Ordained in the modern Catholic Church in 2008, Fr. Michael Oswalt soon came to see that not only were his orders invalid, but that his Church was not truly the Catholic Church. He came to Mount St. Michael in January of 2010 to prepare for ordination in the traditional Catholic rite, and was ordained to the priesthood on June 29, 2011.
View an excerpt of Fr. Oswalt’s online interview explaining why he left the Conciliar Church and was ordained in the traditional Catholic rite. His letter to the clergy of the diocese of Rockford, a superb explanation of why the modern Church is not truly the Catholic Church, was published in Issue No. 138 of The Reign of Mary and may also be read at this link.
