Men of Christ Catholic Men's Conference - Saturday, April 1 at the Milwaukee Theater

On Saturday, April 1, Men of Christ will begin a journey to order in our families, parishes and communities. This can only happen through obedience and starts with men like you! St. Thomas Aquinas says, “Obedience unites us so closely to God that in a way transforms us into Him, so that we have no other will but His”. In a culture that promotes self-gratification, men need the support of other faithful men who share their ideals in order to practice obedience amid the rebellion. The Men of Christ Conference does just that by bringing men of all ages from all over the Midwest together at the Milwaukee Theater for a day of powerful talks by internationally recognized speakers, Dr. Scott Hahn, Jason Evert, and Jesse Romero. The day will begin with an optional Mass at 7:00 a.m. and officially starts at 9:00 a.m. The conference will close with Holy Mass celebrated by Archbishop Listecki at 4:00 p.m.‚Äč Young men ages 18-35 are encouraged to also attend the Young Men of Christ Conference on Friday, March 31 at 6:30 p.m. for food, fellowship, and talks on the challenges of being a young adult in today's culture.
