St Michael’s Militia is a Catholic self defense organization. Tasked with protecting Catholic parishes and neighborhoods, this militia force was formed by the Bishop of the New Cumbrian Diocese. Catholic parishes and organizations became the targets of various political, religious and criminal organizations.
Members often have some formal military training. As a whole competency level is low compared to other more aggressive forces, however morale and dedication is high.
St Michael’s Militia members are easily identifiable, all members when on regular patrol or guard duty wear a distinctive Purple Beret and patch. Only when performing rare raids or more clandestine actions will they not wear these uniform items.
Often members of the militia can be seen working beside military and law enforcement personnel especially guarding aid stations and key infrastructure.
