I know a lot of you have seen this video but I post it for those who do not know what the weekend is about. Thanks to Ernest Garcia for putting it together for us!
And now you can sign up for this giveaway of a copy of my Maglet: Finer Femininity; A Sunshiny Disposition, a beautiful brass wire-wrapped rosary bracelet and a First Communion Catechism Audio CD from St. Anne’s Helper to help you teach your little ones the Catechism!
Just leave a comment on this post!
The winner will be announced on Weds., June 15th!
“Being feminine does not mean being giggly, unintelligent, incompetent or unreliable. Instead, our femininity is an assignment from God. It is how God created us. It is a character that is imprinted deeply upon us, which is made apparent in our physical bodies, and by how we speak, act and dress.” -Colleen Hammond, Dressing With Dignity
The St Anne’s Helper looks very interesting. Have you used it yourself and if so, how did it help? The weekend also looks fantastic!!!!! I very much hope it is a success! 🙂
All of your books are lovely too and the religious jewelry too!
Thank you Mary. No, I have not used the Saint Anne’s Helper yet. A good friend just introduced me to her site and gave me copies for the give away, etc. I am sure it would have been helpful in preparing the grandchildren for First Communion and we will use it next year.
I have not read any of your books yet- but I certainly would love too. The topic on this book is very intriguing- a sunshiny disposition is not only a great help in day to day life on a day-to-day level but also on the spiritual side. And it works two ways- if one is feeling down,oftentimes just smiling cheers you up: and when you put a smile on, it quickly spreads………. Cheerfulness is one of the most contagious things I know…..:)
I would very much like to know more details of how you came up with the Family weekend, how you schedule it, put it together and a general cost. It looks like such an edifying and happy weekend. I would be interested in trying to get something like it down south in our neck of the woods. Thank you and God bless,
Hello Marie, I will give you a condensed answer to that. 🙂 Depending on who your speakers are and how much they cost, as well as the dance caller, it can run anywhere from $1500.00 to $3000.00. The hall is another factor to think about. We get a good deal on the hall and I have learned to do the dance calling myself which cuts down on expenses considerably. The reason we started the weekends is because of all the young people who were coming from out of town for our little wholesome dances we were having. It was getting to the point where my home was inundated with families and youth for the whole weekend because they had traveled and wanted to stick around. It was great times, but how opportune to have a whole weekend, with spiritual helps included!! People are hungry for this!
So it would be beneficial for you to reach out to those you know out-of-town who are like-minded and make sure and send them invites, too, along with your local people.
Go ahead and ask particular questions. I am glad to answer them. 🙂

It’s been very encouraging to see that there are Catholic families out there who are faithful, modest and joyful. And everyone looks so pretty and happy in their dresses with all the wonderful babies! We live hundreds of miles from the nearest traditional parish. We are the only traditional minded Catholics I’ve ever known, and we arrived broken and terribly inadequate to be good examples to anyone. I’m glad to know families like you exist. God Bless 🙂
Thank you kindly, Mrs. Sadler. 🙂
Wow Aunt Leane! You are always so generous in your give-aways!:) May God reward you and bless you:)
This event sounds lovely whenever I hear of it. I just wish I lived a little closer. I hope you and yours have a wonderful time there.
Thank you Donal. Time to get your globetrotting shoes on! 😉
Leane, unless those shoes are winged wings such as Hermes was known for, I’m not sure they will help… 😉
Looking forward to the family weekend!!!!
Love, love, love your blog!
I want to go! Too close to my due date though, even if we were close enough to attend. 🙂
I look forward to reading your blog everyday! Thank you for taking the time to inspire all of us. May God reward you.

My family would very much like to attend the 2016 Traditional Family Weekend. We’ve wanted to go for some time and this year we wanted to try to see if this will be the year God has ordained for us to participate. Fr. Cassavantes was the first F.S.S.P. priest my family first knew, he was our pastor at St. Joseph the Worker and following him was Fr. Allen, which we hear both priests will be present at your get-together. We very much would love to see them again and meet new families. So, we’re gonna storm the heavens with prayers and we’ll see what happens.
I was wondering, though, the families who do come, where do they stay? Are there hotels near or camp sites? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much. Know that if we aren’t able to make it, your family and those who participate will be in our prayers for a successful grace and fun filled weekend. God Bless!
¡Viva Cristo Rey!,
Hello Monica, How nice it would be if you could make it! As far as accommodations, it would be hotels. Topeka is close. If one had an RV the little town right close (Rossville, KS) has hookups for them in the park. Thank you for your prayers Monica! They are appreciated. You will be in mine. I am taking your intentions to Mass this morning. 🙂
Just discovered your blog and LOVE it!
