The Troubadours Summit Series is an outgrowth of an annual symposium in Fort Scott, Kansas called the Prairie Troubadour.

Faithful to Holy Mother Church, The Troubadours are a group of friends inspired by the likes of Cardinal Newman, ChesterBelloc, John Senior, and other stalwarts of the Faith, to live and share the Joy of Christ through stories, song, and good red wine. Through our online summit series,  we aim to create an authentic Catholic experience where the Good, the True and the Beautiful are glimpsed through lively discourse punctuated by earnest prayer, strong drink, and the real mirth found in friendship.

Catholicism needn’t be stodgy and narrow.  Quite the contrary! As G.K. Chesterton reminds us, the walls built by the Church through doctrine and discipline are not the walls of a prison, but the “walls of a playground.”

And as Belloc wrote, “Wherever the Catholic Sun doth shine, there’s always laughter and good red wine.  At least I’ve always found it so. Benedicamus Domino.”

Indeed it is so.  Let us bless the Lord!
