I'm still incredibly short on time.  If you click on my Twitter Feed here, or in my sidebar and scroll, you will see me passing along hot topics in Catholicism a few times daily. 

For now, I want to get word out about this conference and I hope you let others know.

From the CTH Newsletter about the 13th Conference:

Mark your calendars! Call to Holiness (CTH) will hold its 13th conference all day Saturday, June 11, 2011 at the Burton Manor in Livonia.

A Response to Call to Action
Call to Holiness was formed by the grace of God to shine the light of truth on the errors being promoted by Call to Action at their Detroit conference at Cobo Hall in November 1996. Call to Action (CTA) is an organization which dissents from Catholic Church authority and magisterial teachings. When Call to Action returns to Detroit in 2011, Call to Holiness will respond with a simultaneous conference with speakers faithful to the Magisterium.

Archbishop Vigneron  has offered his support and blessing on the event:
