The 15th Annual St. Louis Marian Conference will open on Friday, January 10, 2014 at 3:00pm.
You are invited to bring your families, friends, and the parishioners of your Parish to this wonderful weekend. This is our Fifteenth Annual Marian Conference of St. Louis and the theme this year is “Do Whatever He Tells You”. With this instruction Our Lady teaches us trust, obedience, co-operation and humility. Mary is the model of every mother and family. Our Lady by her example always submitted to the Will of God. With our confidence and devotion to our Lady society can change, but it is up to each one of us.
The secret of peace and happiness is our indifference to good fortune or adversity by accepting it all from the hand of God without questioning, not to ask for things to be done as we would like them, but as God wishes. When we pray and the outcome challenges our Faith, we know our prayers and sacrifices are pleasing and acceptable to God. We do not pray for an outcome, only that our prayers are that the Will of God should be perfectly accomplished in ourselves and in all creatures. The Conference is a spiritual weekend, a retreat, a reunion and an opportunity to hear and meet our wonderful speakers.
The Millennium Hotel has advised that we may exceed their available rooms for the Conference in January. Additional rooms have been secured at the St. Louis Hilton at the Ballpark Hotel, located one block away on Broadway. The same rate is guaranteed and ongoing free shuttle service will be provided. Continue to call for hotel reservations at the Millennium, and when they have no available rooms left, they will provide a reservation phone number for the Hilton. The Conference room and vendor area will be at the lower level at the Millennium as planned.
