2600 Sand Dunes Drive
Latin Mass Conference
FEBRUARY 23 and 24, 2019
When Shepherds Become Wolves
at Monterey Tides, 2600 Sand Dunes Drive, Monterey, CA
Some have described the present state of affairs in the Church as
apocalyptic, and more and more Catholics—no longer just “traditionalists”—are waking up to the reality that something is terribly
wrong with the “renewal” that was supposed to have followed Vatican II. At the center of this still-unfolding catastrophe is an unprecedented crisis in the clergy. This conference will address the crisis in
a series of probing and provocative analyses.
• The precise origins of the clergy crisis—a crisis with many roots,
some of them little known.
• How the clergy crisis has manifested itself in the life of the Church and
• Strategies for defending faith and morals faith in a time of false prophets and hirelings.
• How the clergy crisis can and will be ended
