The Knights of Lepanto have conquered! Run Away!!
Lots of fun and formation over the weekend (May 25-27) with the Father-Son Encampment. This was only one of three that we are doing this year. Summer and Fall yet to come. The Summer Encampment will be from Friday, July 27-Sunday 29.
Check out the “Encampment Photos” widget at the right. Plenty of pics for viewing. More to come.
True knights are both Men of Prayer and Men of Action. For that reason, Mass and nocturnal adoration held pride of place.
The men and boys were learning the skills of the Knight of Lepanto: archery, swordsmanship, knot-tying, but more importantly, fidelity, honesty, courtesy, prowess, generosity and love for the Queen of Lepanto.
And, oh yah, the men and boys all worked up an appetite that was gloriously satisfied by a roasted pig.
Some of the Knights who attended will be blogging about their experiences.

A wonderful event and my 3 boys had an absolute wonderful time. They cannot wait for the next campout. Lucas will talk it up I’m sure and get one or two more to come. Fencing is a new discussion at the house, it’s very welcome. As one of my boys says “it certainly beats the sword fighting in the video games”
The discussions have certainly crept in because it is showing as they correct each other at the house. Quite interesting. Good job and let’s keep moving forward.
From a proud mom of a knight and squire and pages to be…
This was a wonderful event and I pray that Our Lady will use this and future Knights of Lepanto events for Her Son’s glory and for the sanctification of our families!
Oh yeah – and from a more practical point of view, I’m SO glad we ladies didn’t even have to clean, cook or clean up after that sad looking over-toasted porcine pop tart!
