Taylor Marshall is hosting a men’s conference at St. Catherine of Siena parish in Carrollton on Oct. 12 at 9am.  All details and registration here.  Cost is $20 but this includes a box lunch.  The theme of the conference is answering the call to holiness.  More below:

Registration is now open for this year’s Fall 2013 Men’s Conference at St. Catherine of Siena in Carrollton, Texas. The conference will take place Saturday, October 12th; 9:00 A.M. til 3:30 P.M. We encourage you to kick off the day by joining us for morning Mass at 8:30A.M. This year’s registration includes a boxed lunch and drink. Reconciliation and Eucharistic Adoration will be available. This year’s theme is Answering the Call to Holiness. Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Taylor Marshall who teaches at Fisher More College in Ft. Worth, TX, has authored several books and has been featured on EWTN’s The Journey Home. –

That’s true, Taylor has been featured on The Journey Home, and he blogs at Canterbury Tales. He’s also been taking a pretty harsh tone at times towards some of his fellow traddy-types, which might explain why he’s still able to speak on church grounds.  Me, not so much.

I shouldn’t tease.  Taylor is a good guy.  And there are fewer topics dearer to my heart than the dire need for Catholic men to start acting like men again. Heck, not just Catholic men, but all men, but since Catholics should lead the culture in all things, it is imperative in particular that Catholic men lead the charge.  I’m sure Taylor will have some good advice on how to do that, since I know he cares passionately about that topic, as well.

Dr. Marshall no longer teaches at Fsfher-More College. After being promoted from dean to chancellor last December, he was purged in June for not being “traditional” enough; i.e., not criticizing the alleged attitude of Pope Francis toward the traditional Latin Mass or the restrictions placed on the Francisan Friars of the Immaculate especially regarding that as the major issue.

That’s hearsay. I have heard different reasons. But I have noted that Taylor has been pretty critical of those he calls traditionalists of late. Not sure why, but he does make his living off the Church, more or less.

Interesting. Has he ever discussed why he left or was let go?

I’ve only heard 2nd hand. But I’ve heard there was a pretty good personality difference between Taylor and the founder/president of Fisher More. It was more a matter of personality clash than any doctrinal differences. I sincerely doubt it had anything to do with the FIMs, since he left that position last spring, before most people knew anything about his leaving, and way before the FIM situation broke. He’s been gone from Fisher More since last May/June.

It happens. I hope they both do well in the future.
