SAN FRANCISCO, CA (Catholic Online) - The conference entitled, "Saint Michael the Archangel, Defend Us in Battle Spiritual Warfare and the Triumph of Love" will be hosted at the Sofitel San Francisco Bay Hotel in Redwood City, just south of San Francisco. An all-star slate of speakers will discuss the challenges of spiritual warfare in the modern age.

The public is invited to attend the conference, which will be hosted by Catholic Online, the world's leading Catholic news, information, and media website. Speakers include:

-Bishop Robert F. Vassa, the bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Santa Rosa
-Mary Beth Bonacci, an internationally acclaimed speaker on moral issues
-Dr. Deal Hudson, a conservative political activist and founding chair of Catholic Advocate
-Al Kresta, Catholic broadcaster and journalist, President and CEO of Ave Maria Radio
-Catholic Online's own Deacon Keith Fournier, Editor-in-Chief of Catholic Online and deacon at St. Stephen Martyr Parish in Chesapeake, Virginia.

Other speakers will also be attending whom Catholic Online will announce soon.

This conference occurs at a pivotal time in America, when our nation is beset by evils of all kinds. Warfare, both physical and spiritual are daily realities for all Americans. We see enemies overseas, and we see them at home. Drugs, gangs, licentiousness, and greed pervade every aspect of our culture. Our political system is corrupted, our healthcare system is being wrecked, and our children's future is being mortgaged.

In return, we are being given false hope, empty promises, and encouragement to follow paths that include sexual deviancy, atheism, and publicly encouraged, government sanctioned irresponsibility.

The orchestrator of this evil is Satan, but the Devil has an opponent in Saint Michael, the Archangel. Tasked by God to command the heavenly host, Saint Michael aids us in spiritual warfare when we call to him.

Your conference will teach you about this enigmatic but powerful saint, and will teach you how to win against Satan who is a constant challenger to faith. You will have the opportunity to learn many new and important things such as how to speak to one who has given themselves over to temptation and the devil, and how you too can avoid this tragic pitfall.

Your conference is hosted at a wonderful location, close to San Francisco and near the Bay. Visitors may take advantage of this to visit San Francisco to sightsee and shop. San Francisco is filled with attractions for tourists and the cities surrounding the Bay each have their own local identity and are also worth exploring.

Those who attend the conference and get their seat early, will enjoy early-bird pricing which will include two-night's stay at the Sofiatel San Francisco Bay and all meals during this exclusive conference. The early bird access is just $495.

Already, the conference has enjoyed broad appeal with signups forming a list on Catholic Online. Seats at the conference are limited and will be awarded on a first-come first-serve basis.
