Letter From the President

Dear Friends,

Our Grace and Salvation Conference at the Pikes Peak Center this year was so wonderful and spiritual. Everyone had a good time and, of course, the presence of the Holy Spirit was tangible. It was a particular blessing to have Bernie’s whole family here this August.

Pictured here are Lindsay Younce, actress for the movie THERESE, and Erica Saenz. Erica may be young, but she is a great member of St. Thomas Aquinas Society and a great volunteer. They are pictured here at the conference Roses table.

One of the blessings of our conferences are the events scheduled after. Fr. Patrick Martin also spoke at St. Gabriel the Archangel Church here in Colorado Springs and at a number of locations in Denver. He has also been invited to Montana for a conference this Spring. Bernie’s family went up to Wyoming to give a concert after our conference and there were other scheduled events with other speakers as well.

Now we are on to our 15th major conference: Be Not Afraid which is scheduled at the Pikes Peak Center for August 3-5, 2012. Be sure to mark your calendar. Registrations are already coming in. See the article below for more information.

Remember to keep us in your prayers. Also, we are enclosing a donation sheet. We would like to extend a gift of appreciation to our donors. Please take a look and help us if you can. We still have expenses from our past conference and new expenses ahead with the next. Most of all, mark your calendar for Aug. 3-5, 2012.

Our Prayer Motto: Have you said your Hail Mary today for the St. Thomas Aquinas Society?

Thank you and God bless you – Therese Lorentz
