ONLINE REGISTRATION FOR APRIL 1, 2017 DIOCESAN MEN’S CONFERENCE FEATURING DR. PETER KREEFT NOW AVAILABLE!
THE CONFERENCE IS AGAIN AT BISHOP MCDEVITT HIGH SCHOOL. PLEASE SEE THE LINK BELOW TO REGISTER.
We are confident that this is one of the finest Men’s Conferences in the country. As evidence of this, we have increased in attendance every year (this will be our 6
Diocesan Men’s Conference). Last year, 925 men registered. We are aiming for 1,000+ men registered this year. Given that the conference is on April 1, the theme was relatively easy to come up with:
The theme is Scripturally-based, from St. Paul.
Fools for Christ: Men Called to Glorify God through His Catholic Church
Peter Kreeft’s keynote is “Seven Reasons Why Everyone Should Be Catholic.”
If you are not familiar with him, Kreeft is one of the most popular Catholic speakers and authors in the country. He will also be doing a breakout session on Angels and Demons, which he also wrote a book on (he has written more than 70 books). We have even more workshops this year than in the past (38 workshops over three sessions).
Bishop Gainer, besides celebrating Mass, is also presenting a workshop on St. Thomas More as a Model for Conscience Formation.
There will also be Adoration and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament (100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions), more than 20 Priests on hand to hear Confessions from 11:15 – 2:45 pm, plus good food, good music, good vendors and exhibits, and good fellowship.
I am hoping that every parish will bring a group of men to the conference. Some parishes might even need to bring a bus. That would be wonderful.
Register before March 13 to get the early-bird discount of $30.
