Journal from St Michael's Conference

Here are a few pictures from St Michael's Youth Conference, Southwest. (Click on the pictures to enlarge.) So far, things have been going pretty well this week. I am teaching one elective: the Holiness of Beauty. Michaelites attend Morning Prayer and Mass and have three class periods in the morning. There is also a faculty talk after Evensong each night. The afternoon and evening is taken up with recreational activities, and we close with Compline before bed. You might have thought that would be pretty heavy stuff for teenagers, but they eat it up with a spoon. The kids (and any of the adults who haven't yet) will start to make their confessions tomorrow, so keep them in your prayers. It's an intense time. We'll close on Saturday with a pageant for the parents.
