April 4, 2020 - Day of Recollection and Conference on Holiness with His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke, His Excellency Bishop Joseph Strickland, and Reverend Dennis Gill at the Cathedral Basilica in Philadelphia



Dear Friends,

Most of you came to the Conference on Matrimony which we sponsored at the Cathedral in April of 2018 and know what a beautiful and uplifting experience it was. The periods set aside for Adoration and prayer were very important as we reflected on the important thoughts that the speakers that day were discussing.  We invite you again to join us this year for a Day of Recollection and Conference on the Vigil of Palm Sunday for an uplifting discussion of what we must do to achieve true holiness, to which we are all are called.  Please join us for this special day as we pray together and listen to the outstanding speakers, Cardinal Raymond Burke, Bishop Joseph Strickland, and Father Dennis Gill, who will guide us spiritually.

There will be opportunity for confession, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Procession and Crowning of the National Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima, recitation of the rosary and the beautiful Vigil Mass for Palm Sunday.  Lunch will be served and coffee and donuts served at registration with coffee and tea available all day long.

Please pray for the success of this day which is a wonderful preparation for Easter and please help us to publicize it with family and friends.  We would appreciate it if you would post flyers  in your church vestibule with your pastor’s permission and ask your pastor to include this event as a notice in the  parish bulletin.  Priests, sisters and seminarians are admitted without cost and the student fee is $20 a person.  Priests are most welcome to celebrate the Mass and are asked to bring their albs. There will be tables available for vendors and non-profit groups at a charge of $75 per table.  Please contact us if you have any further questions about the event. 

Please click on the link below to our website where you can download the flyer and registration forms and for details about the day.  


We hope you are able to join us!  We welcome volunteers to help at the day of the conference.

Thank you and God bless,

Anne Wilson
