From February 8-11, TFP members and the staff of Saint Louis de Montfort Academy held a weekend event for boys within driving distance of the school, in Herndon, Pennsylvania.
The staff and organizers began holding informal events like this one, to reach out to boys in the area and allow academy students to forge new friendships. So far the weekend programs have been very successful.
The programs consist in a normal weekend at the school, reinforced with one or another extra lectures to help the boys’ intellectual and spiritual formation. This event had two such meetings, one on the power and importance of the rosary and another on the cultural errors of the Renaissance and the lasting effect these had on civilization as a whole.
However, the boys did much more than just study. The program was filled with activities and games as well. Snow prepared the field well for an exciting game of shield ball, after which the attendees were ready to warm up, indoors, with a game of charades.
Thanks to Presidents’ Day, the program was extended into Monday, which the boys spent ice-skating at a local rink. After the event ended that evening, students and locals alike were sad to say good-bye, but enthusiastic about the next Call to Chivalry weekend organizers have planned for March.
