2014 Western Rite Conference
« on: May 29, 2014, 03:02:32 PM »
The biennial conference of the AWRV will be held from Tuesday, August 5 through Friday, August 8 at Saints Cyril & Methodius Seminary in Orchard Lake, Michigan.

The theme for the conference will be based on 1 Cor. 9:25, "Every man that striveth for mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible." Presentations will focus on discipline and the spiritual life.

Bp. JOHN (Abdalah) will attend and address the conference attendees. There will be daily Mass with Vespers and Lauds.

Invitation is open to all. Price, accommodations, registration forms, etc., will be available soon.

Does HG celebrate services or just attend them?

Good question, unfortunately I don't have an answer. I know HG has only recently become the auxiliary bishop for the Western Rite, so I'm not sure how familiar he is with the actual liturgy.

Cool.  8) I don't suppose the address will be "podcasted" (like they do with the Orientale Lumen Conferences)?
