  • On Friday the Sisters, St. Michael's High School students and parishioners sang for the Bishop's Pontifical High Mass.

  • His Excellency addresses the congregation during the Mass.
  • The elevation of the Sacred Host: "My Lord and my God!"
  • "Ecce Agnus Dei..."
  • His Excellency began his lecture by showing Conference guests a rosary which once belonged to Jacinta Marto.
  • His Excellency's lecture, entitled "Apologia pro Ecclesia Vera," was a defense of the traditional Catholic Faith.

  • Fr. Casimir Puskorius, CMRI, gave the second lecture of the day on "Latin, the Language of the Church."

  • Sr. Marie Vianney, CMRI, principal of St. Michael's High School, spoke about the graces and challenges of running a Catholic school.
