Would someone help me connect with the Catholic Magicians Guild? This is a group similar to the Fellowship of Gospel Magicians, but it does not seem to be up and running anymore. Its five stated goals (as listed by Angelo Stagnaro’s book The Catechist’s Magic Kit) are to :
1.Help parishes by augmenting catechetical instruction with stage or close-up magic,
2.Spread devotion to Sts. Don Bosco, Nicholas Owen, and Genesius—patron saints of magic,
3.Offer services to Catholic fraternal and philanthropic organizations for fundraising, etc.,
4.Evangelize and instruct non-Catholics in our faith throught the vehicle of Gospel Magic,
5.Instruct the general public of the tricks and traps of charlatans who present themselves as having magical powers or psychic abilities.
