Has spiritual warfare gone viral? Look around in your family, neighborhood, your parish, the Church, society, government, the world. Oh yes, the evil one is anxious that he is running out of time. He has not destroyed the Church, and he cannot overcome the intercession of Our Lady. He is a coward and running fast. Our survival tools are prayer and the sacraments. Now you can invite your families, friends, and the parishioners and priests of your parish to a wonderful spiritual weekend to be refueled.
This is our Seventeenth Annual Marian Conference of St. Louis. Many families come from out of state to remember each other in this beautiful environment, and to spend the weekend in total union with our Blessed Mother and each other.
The NEW location, the Renaissance, has been completely renovated and is beautiful. The rooms are large, the price is the same, and we encourage room reservations so you get the best deal. The hotel is two minutes from Lambert International Airport with free continuous shuttle service. They are owned by Marriott and reservations may be made at the Marriott reservation number: (800) 468-3571, or the Renaissance local number: (314) 429-1100. Please ask for the special rate for the Marian Conference at the Renaissance.
There will be sessions directed to the Young Adults, allowing them to attend and meet the keynote speakers. We do not want them separated to another part of the hotel and it is good for the family to hear what the youth are hearing. There will be opportunity for anyone to meet with questions with the individual speaker. We will have some scholarships to cover the registration fee for youth (age 12 to 25). Additionally, any youth attending with a family member who reserves a room, the youth registration to the conference will be waived.
Our speakers this year are: Father Christopher Collins, SJ; Father David Gunter, MIC; Judy Klein; Fr. Mark Mary, moderator of Life on the Rock at EWTN; Father Mitch Pacwa,SJ; Father Tom Sullivan, CPM; Fr. Charles Becker; Msgr. John J. Hickel; Father Mark Whelan, SOLT.
Celebration of Mass each day, Confession throughout the weekend, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the Adoration Chapel open the entire weekend.
