It's October 4, 2019 and crowds of traditional Catholics from around the country have gathered together once again for the annual Angelus Press Conference. Smiling faces and the buzz of chatter fills the halls as people browse vendor booths and greet old and new acquaintances.
His Excellency Bishop Bernard Fellay joins us today as well as many other priests, monks (who have once again brought their delicious Abbey Roast Coffee for us to sample and enjoy) sisters, and laity. We especially remember our Franciscan Sisters today on the feast of their founding father, the Seraphic St. Francis.
The US District Superior, Fr. Jurgen Wegner gave a welcome address to open the Conference and explained the importance of this year's theme: "Defense of the Family: Fortifying Catholic Marriage."
The conferences given by the various speakers today were both thought-provoking and practical. Topics surrounding the family in today's society are extremely important for the traditional Catholic who wants to give their children the best formation possible. And yet, in order to do this, we need to be informed about the dangers to family life and the war waged against the soul by the world, the flesh, and the devil.
After dinner, we were able to wind down from the days events by enjoying an evening mixer and game night with drinks and hors d'oeuvres.Tomorrow is another full day of conferences beginning with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Rosary.
O Lord, grant us many, holy, Catholic families!

With great sadness, the U.S. District of the Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX) announces the passing of Fr. Dominique Bourmaud. He went to his eternal reward in the early hours of Saturday, September 4, 2021.
Eternal rest grant unto Fr. Dominique Bourmaud, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.
