Latin Mass Conferences
Addressing the Challenges to the Faith, building up the Faithful
Our annual educational conference offers priests and faithful (often isolated because of their views and dispositions) a sense of hope and rekindles enthusiasm for grassroots propagation of the Faith. They bring together some of the most thoughtful and engaging Catholic speakers from around the country to address the critical issues facing the Church and the culture in a crisis of unparalleled proportions.
