Living as Catholic Men in a Changing World
Saturday, March 28, 2009
This year’s Conference is a great opportunity to hear our superb guest speakers, to renew your commitment to God’s plan for your life, to enjoy fellowship and sharing with men from across the Diocese and to celebrate men’s spirituality. Our new location and schedule changes are in response to your suggestions and we hope that they make the conference easier to attend for more men and a more fulfilling experience for all, whether it’s your first time or you are a regular attendee.
