Our Patron, Our Community and Our Events

There are also several other St. Michael's conferences across North America. See 'related links'.

Our Patron, St. Michael the Archangel

He symbolizes a strong religion, one of service to God and to others. He is also a warrior, who does not back down in the face of Evil. His name means ‘who is like God?’ and he stands in opposition to all movements and powers which set themselves up as rivals to the Holy Trinity. St. Michael is also patron saint of policemen, firemen, soldiers and all those who place their lives and futures, between Evil and the innocent. Many of our former Michaelites have grown up to take their place in the ranks of those who 'protect and serve". Others have filled leadership roles in their local churches, all in the knowledge that they are carrying on a great tradition under the Protection of God and His Angels.

Our Conferees are known as Michaelites

Youngsters from 12-21 gather from all parts of the nation. Some are from independent Anglican churches, some from Episcopal churches, others from  other denominations. All are united by a love of the learning, fun and inspiration they receive at St. Mike's (at least, after their first year!
