Confirmation Retreats

Michael and his daughters Gabriella, Trinity, & Charity provide excellent experiences in a confirmation retreat.

Praise and Worship

The band, MJM7 can provide musical opportunities to enter into prayer through praise and worship music.

Michael’s concerts are a great opportunity to bring together the whole community without barriers... it appeals to both Anglo and Hispanic communities. It’s an event where everyone can join together to praise and worship the Lord through the universal language of music.
— Fr. Ivan Ascencio, St. Joseph Waxahachie, TX
