A Week Like no Other!

The Patron of St. Michael’s Conference for Youth

Located in Michigan and currently held at Manresa Retreat Center in Bloomfield Hills, just outside of Detroit, St. Michael’s Conference for Youth Midwest offers one of the finest Christian formation programs anywhere!


Sprung from its sister conference in Massachusetts, St. Mike’s Midwest is designed to serve youth aged 12-21. The conference follows a traditional program of prayer, heart-felt worship, solid education in Christianity which is orthodox, both catholic (for all Christians) and evangelical, an exhilarating mix of fun, good food and fellowship.

Here’s what teens themselves would like to say to others about their experience at St. Michael’s:

“I felt much happier than I have for a long time, laughing and worshiping God with my friends. I really felt that he was there, saying, ‘Enjoy this moment’.”


“Everyone has fun. No matter what, we are there for each other!”

“It’s like a spiritual booster shot, a great opportunity to learn and grow in your faith with God.”

“Wow! It is the best part of summer!”

If you’re not Anglo-Catholic, it will rock your world and make you really think. And if you ARE an Anglo-Catholic, it will still rock your world and make you think!”


“It’s the best place ever! You will love it!”

“It is one of the things I’m most thankful for in my life!”

“A wonderful experience and all people should give it a chance because it’s not ‘just another church camp.”

 “….the fun-est, craziest, wildest Christian place you’ll ever go!”

“It changed and helped me so much!”

I came indifferent. I left inspired!”    

St. Mike’s is that kind of conference where, when                                             you first get there, you’re not really sure whether                                                     you want to be there. But at the end you realize that you belong here and                                                      there isn’t any place else you want to be . .


Go for you!”

“It will change the way you look at God!”

“An experience you’ll remember for the rest of your life!”

“It is the best place to come for spiritual growth. I have made many friends here that I will keep for years to come.”

“It lit a fire. I want to learn more about Christ and the Church!”

St. Mike’s is like going to Heaven for a week!

It changed everything!


It’s (St. Mike’s) is an addiction. The good kind though. It’s an addiction to God!


It is totally worth it and you would have to come to see for yourself! (But I am going anyways, whether you do, or not!)


It is a memorable and amazing experience you won’t ever forget.

“Lately I have been really slacking, not living a Godly life as much as I should be. This year several of the sermons really made me realize how much. I’m really going to change a lot this year.”


“When I go to church I actually mean what I’m saying, not just going through the motion.”


“I came here a borderline atheist due to events in my life, but this week . . .

                             l looked into the eyes of God!”
