The Best Part of the Catholic Men’s Conference?


by Mario Perez, Catholic Men’s Conference Steering Committee

Why attend an all-day Catholic conference when there are a million other things to do?

For the past three years, I’ve had the privilege of seeing the Catholic Men’s Conference come together from behind-the-scenes as a steering committee member. After long hours of planning and many months of meetings, seeing everything come together the day of the conference makes it all worth it.

On those two days, I always find joy on hundreds of men’s faces. There are the men who were impacted by something they heard one of the speakers say. Or the man who comes up and says, “Thanks. Because of this conference, I am growing in my relationship with Christ.” Or the man who says, “I had not been to the Sacrament of Reconciliation in years, but I went because I attended the conference.”

The theme of the conference is “Master, I want to see,” taken from the Gospel of Mark. Why do we stick with this theme year after year? Because the fact is that many of us men are blind, searching for something that we are not sure of. This conference helps guide men to what they are searching for, and that is Jesus Christ.

What’s my favorite part of the conference? It’s seeing the participants leave. No, really – I love to see them leave with smiles on their faces, filled with all the knowledge that they gained over the last two days (and filled with the Holy Spirit).

Do you want to be a part of this conference? There’s still time to register here: Men, what are you waiting for? Join us this March 23-24 for a great event. Ladies, encourage your fathers, husbands, brothers, sons to attend this event.

Many great things have come out of this conference for six years, and I’m sure this year’s conference will be no different.
