During the weekend of March 9-11, young men from Texas and Louisiana converged on Camp Strake in Conroe, TX for TFP-LA's first Call to Chivalry Spring Camp. In spite of the weekend's severe thunder showers, the ambience was lively. In this picture, Mr. Ben Broussard of Lake Charles, LA gives a talk on the fiery apostle of Mary, Saint Louis de Montfort.

 

There is nothing better than a game of chess to sharpen one's attention.

 

The rain couldn't dampen the joy to be together of young men enthused with the spirit of chivaly.

 

Thankfully there was a sufficient brake in the rain for a couple of hours of outdoor games. Here participants use team work to form a pyramid.

 

Participants battle to capture each other's flags.

 

In shield ball, the object of the games is to knock over the enemy shield with the ball.

 

President of TFP-LA, Mr. Thomas Drake, draws lessons for participants from the life and martyrdom of Saint John Ogilvie whose feast day fell on Saturday, March 10.

 

In spite of the camp being short in duration, all returned home more on fire with devotion to Our Lady and the spirit of chivalry. Directly in front of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima poses Mrs. Deborah Harvey who cooked and made all feel at home at Camp Strake.

On March 3, 2012 over 100 Catholics made a 5 mile Lenten pilgrimage from the shrine of Our Lady of Vietnam to the shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Port Arthur, TX. Here Fr. Jacob Conner carries a life-size cross in a spirit of penance. TFP-LA was among other groups like the Latin Mass Society of Beaumont and 40 Days for Life of Beaumont to sponsor the pilgrimage.

 

The pilgrims sang hymns in honor of Our Lady and prayed many rosaries during the walk. They also stopped along the way at Saint James Catholic Church and prayed the stations of the cross.

 

After happily reaching their final destination, TFP members and friends pose with Fr. Conner in front of the shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

With one of the property's majestic live oaks in the background, the 20' red and gold campaign standard of the TFP is raised and the Nicene Creed is sung to start off the TFP-Louisiana 2012 Regional Conference. As in the two previous years, the day-long event was held at the organization's headquarters in Lafayette. Some 50 dedicated Catholics from the Bayou and Lone Star states attended.

This year's Regional Conference was held on the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, February 11.

TFP-Louisiana president Thomas Drake was Master of Ceremonies and introduced the speakers

The first talk of the day was given by American TFP vice president John W. Horvat II. He talked about "The Fight for Tradition, Family, and Property: Where Do We Go From Here?"

In this picture, TFP member Michael Drake gives the Conference's second talk: "True Happiness: Where Can One Find It?"

Another picture of the same talk.

The fourth talk was given by TFP member Cesar Franco and Mr. Ben Broussard. Among other things they discussed was the American TFP's October 2011 caravan in Mississippi to drum up support for the legal personhood of the unborn.

Another photo of the talk given by Messrs. Cesar Franco and Ben Broussard. The speaker's podium had a small statue of Our Lady of Prompt Succor behind it. The headquarters is dedicated to Her and She is patroness of Louisiana.

The last talk of the day was given by TFP supporter Dr. Mark Schneider. He delighted the audience with pictures and a report of the pilgrimage to Quito, Ecuador, for the Feb. 2, 2012 Rosary of the Dawn. This procession through the downtown streets of Quito starts at about 4am and finishes at dawn and drew some 11,000 people this year! The procession has a long history to it and is part of the devotions connected to the miraculous statue of Our Lady of Good Success at the Conceptionist Convent in that city.
