Come, this Congress needs you Every Pilgrim of St. Michael makes it his duty to be present at this Congress. Those who come never regret it. These Congresses are thrilling, comforting, and necessary.
Why shouldn't this 2001 Congress be the most beautiful ever, with the largest attendance? We will celebrate the 66 years of existence of our Movement.
We are going through a tragic period of history. Our schools and institutions have been lost by atheism. Our governments want to impose the structures of a world government. The "Michael” Journal is a beacon in the storm to help people see clear in all this.
Come to show your solidarity and loyalty to the matchless Work of “Michael" and to our venerable Directress and co-foundress; Mrs. Gilberte CôtéMercier, who is aged 91. She herself invites you with these words: ... "Come to put civil power back into the hands of Christ the King and Mary, Queen of the World, as every good Christian must do. Long live Christ the King! Long live Mary, Queen of the World! We will proclaim the temporal kingship of Jesus and Mary, since it is God's plan. .
"Come to draw conclusions from the current year. Come to draw plans to stop for good the advance of Communism and of the world government. Come to fraternize. Come to congratulate the apostles of the year, and encourage them to keep up their good work. And come to be yourself congratulated, you deserve it!
"New subscribers must also come. You will be received so well that you will feel at home like old friends.
"Bring newcomers with you. The 'baptism' of the Congress is the starting point of a Social Credit life for the newcomers. Come all to get fire and hope !" - Gilberte Côté-Mercier
One cannot remain indifferent to this invitation of our beloved Directress who will continue to fight for justice until her last breathe.
Be dressed modestly As usual, ladies will come dressed modestly, with beautiful dresses that are not low-cut, but tied to the neck, with the knees covered and sleeves that reach at least the elbows. In practice, a dress that does not go four inches below the knees does not hide the knees. Transparent or tight-fitting dresses are not allowed, and neither are dresses with this ridiculous slit that make immodest the most beautiful dresses. Shorts and bermudas are not allowed, neither for men nor women. For more dignity, we ask men to wear a jacket. Our clothes must contribute to raise souls to Heaven,
Meals and night's lodgings For meals, each one brings his own food. There are restaurants not far from our grounds. And people are put up, free of charge, in our two houses, or in a monastery in Granby and Rougemont, or in families in the surroundings of Rougemont. Don't forget to bring your towels and soap.
Come to the Congress, and bring other people along with you.
Come to celebrate your patron St. Michael the Archangel House of the Immaculate
Rougemont, Que. Sunday, September 30 Fifth Sunday of the month 10:00 a.m. Opening. Lectures
5:00 p.m. Holy Mass at Rougemont's parish church.
During the day, there will be a splendid Rosary Procession with the statue of St. Michael the Archangel carried on a shaft. We will go on our grounds, towards the grotto of the Immaculate, the statues of the three archangels, our St. Joseph's Chapel, and the graves of our dear departed.
People can have lunch and supper in the hall of the House of the Immaculate or on our grounds. Each one brings his own food.
We expect you all to come and celebrate our patron, Saint Michael the Archangel, whose feast day in the Church falls on September 29. As for us, the Pilgrims of St. Michael, we will celebrate him this year on the fifth Sunday of the month, September 30.
Together, we will recall the memory of the great Louis Even, who left us for Heaven on September 27, 1974.
We expect three buses of Haitians of Montreal who will come to celebrate with us the leader of the Heavenly Hosts. The Haitians have a great devotion to St. Michael.
Come in large numbers to pray to St. Michael, the banner-bearer of the Army of God, the defender of the Church, the protector of the kingship of Christ. We will ask St. Michael to chain up in hell all the demons who wander on earth, to free the Church from her enemies, and to lead our souls to our eternal homeland.
