SPEAKERS

Most Rev. Mark A. Pivarunas, CMRI, celebrates the Silver Jubilee of his episcopal consecration on September 24. Besides his lecture and “question-and-answer” session during this year’s Fatima Conference, he will also give the Keynote Address, “Reflections on 25 Years as a Traditional Catholic Bishop.” Ordained in 1985, His Excellency was raised to the episcopacy in 1991 by the late Bishop Moises Carmona. Bishop Pivarunas is the superior general of the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen, pastor of Mary Immaculate Church in Omaha, rector of Mater Dei Seminary, and principal of Mater Dei Academy. His Excellency also founded the Congregation of Sisters of the Mother of God to assist in his work for souls.

Rev. Father Casimir Puskorius, CMRI: Ordained by Bishop George Musey in 1986, Fr. Casimir Puskorius served in several parishes until taking up residence at Mount St. Michael in 2001, where he has been pastor since. Father is not only pastor of St. Michael’s parish, and a teacher in St. Michael’s Academy, but he is also an accomplished organist and choir director. Father Casimir frequently plays the organ for various ceremonies and sometimes joins in singing with the choir, when not himself offering Mass.

Rev. Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI: Over the years as a priest and religious, Father Benedict has spent his life in various works in the service of our Blessed Mother, particularly in the field of education. Father founded St. Joseph Seminary in 1999 and is also pastor of our oldest parish, Mary Immaculate Queen Church in northern Idaho. He is also the editor of The Reign of Mary magazine and a regular speaker at our annual Fatima Conference.

Rev. Father Dominic Radecki, CMRI: Along with his twin brother, Fr. Dominic was ordained by Bishop Robert McKenna in 1988. Since his ordination, Father has served as pastor of Queen of Angels Church in Santa Clarita, California. He has also co-authored (along with Fr. Francisco Radecki) the books What Has Happened to the Catholic Church and Tumultuous Times, both of which have benefited numerous souls seeking answers to the dilemmas of our day. Fr. Dominic has also written numerous articles for The Reign of Mary particularly for the benefit of our confraternity members.

Rev. Father Brendan Hughes, CMRI: After his ordination in 1989 by Bishop Robert McKenna, Fr. Brendan Hughes spent two years assisting at various parish assignments and taeaching at Mater Dei Seminary. In 1992 he founded Immaculate Conception Parish in St. Cloud, Minnesota, where he has been in residence since. Father has also written many articles for The Reign of Mary magazine, especially on the subject of Church history.

Fr. Ephrem Cordova, CMRI, was ordained on March 10, 1990. He is the pastor of Queen of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Phoenix, Arizona. Father also provides Mass and the sacraments for the faithful in Tucson and other locations. He has been a speaker at the Fatima Conference several times in the past, sharing his insights on various dangers to faith and morals faced by traditional Catholics striving to persevere in the Faith in these troubled times.

Rev. Father Michael Anaya: An alumnus of St. Michael’s Academy, Fr. Anaya was ordained by His Excellency, Bishop Pivarunas, in 1997. Since then, he has served in various parishes, including Most Holy Rosary Church in Michigan, Our Lady of Victory Church in Ontario, and St. Joseph’s Church in Colorado. After spending several years at Mount St. Michael, Father is currently the pastor of St. Mary’s Church in Tacoma, Washington. Father will be the emcee of this year’s Fatima Conference.

Rev. Father Michael Oswalt is a formerly ordained Vatican II priest who realized soon after his ordination that the teachings of the modern Church are very different from those of the Catholic Church founded by Jesus Christ. This led to his leaving the Conciliar Church and eventually coming to Mount St. Michael, where he was ordained in the traditional rite in 2011. Father is pastor of St. Benedict’s Traditional Roman Catholic Church in Lacey’s Spring, Alabama, and has an extensive mission circuit in the southern states.

Dr. Martin P. Hughes, Ph.D., another alumnus of St. Michael’s Academy, holds his doctorate in chemistry from the University of Notre Dame. He has studied at secular as well as modern Catholic institutions of higher learning both in the U.S. and abroad.

Rev. Mother Mary Agnes, CMRI: One of the early members of the Congregation, Rev. Mother made her first profession of vows in 1968. She has held a variety of duties, including Novice Mistress for five years, and coordinator of Mary Immaculate Queen Center for over 20 years. Rev. Mother has been on mission in Illinois, New Zealand, Colorado and Tacoma. She was elected Mother General of the CMRI Sisters in 2010. She also currently serves as St. Michael’s Academy grade school principal and teaches in the high school.
