St Michael's Conference was founded by the Rev. Jack Bowling, a former curate at the Advent, in 1960, to help young people (eighth grade and up) strengthen and nurture their Christian faith as they approach adulthood. The Conference meets annually during the first week in August. Complete information about the Conference can be found at the website (see link below).
The Advent has long had a close relationship with St Michael's Conference. Our own Mark Dwyer has served as Conference organist for a number of years, and many present and former parishioners - and some curates! - have been participants as students and teachers (and sometimes eventually both!). Can you spot the Adventers, past and present, in this distinguished gathering?
