2016 Men’s Conference
Our common call to uncommon greatness.
A Catholic conference for men of all ages.
“It is My will to conquer all the world and all enemies and so to enter into the glory of My Father; therefore, whoever would like to come with Me is to labor with Me, that following Me in the pain, he may also follow Me in the glory.”
In his Spiritual Exercises, St. Ignatius of Loyola invites us to imagine this call of “Christ our Lord, King Eternal” to inspire us to be “ready and diligent to fulfill His most Holy Will.” This call challenges each of us to lead our ordinary lives in extraordinary imitation of Christ—His courage, love and mercy—so that, by His mercy, we might share in His glory for all eternity.
“The ways of the Lord are not easy, but we were not created for an easy life, but for great things, for goodness.” —Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

Becoming a spiritual warrior.
Seeing so many people—busy people—finding time and ways to reach out makes me want to challenge myself to do better.
It really opened my eyes to how I should live out my faith in Christ. Every Catholic man should participate in a conference like this.
I went to confession after 45 years. This event helped me realize that I’m like many other men.
