This is for your Brick By Brick file. Had I known about this, I might have attended! I spent a lot of time during my young summers between Billings and Greybull in N. Wyoming.
From a reader…
Have you heard about this Third Annual Eucharistic Conference in Montana? It’s going on now. HERE
I thought you would be interested because the group of priests (from various parts of the US, not just Montana) spend the week having Solemn Masses each evening. There are talks, processions, adoration and even their bishop makes an appearance! Besides introducing many people to the TLM the priests are able to enjoy fellowship with other like minded priests. I’m not certain but I think most or even all serve in NO parishes. At least one has had a denying-communion to “married” homosexuals occasion. I believe gatherings such as this strengthen the men in their priesthood.
I’ve wanting for a while now to visit the Carmelites in Powell and also perhaps the huge statue of Mary near Butte. It has been many years since I’ve been in that part of the country.
Anyhoo…. Fr. Z kudos to these men for getting organized and making it happen.
If any of them are paying attention to this blog while they are meeting, I would love to have some PHOTOS to post here and updates.
Also, to everyone there I send a solidarity enriched…
