Conference Reflection

Go find yourself a sunrise. Go listen to the wind as it whispers through the trees. Go hug someone very old and someone very young. God is there in every one of our litle momemts throughout the day. We just need to take a minute to realize that. When we do, then we can be sure that He will walk with us and grant us His peace, love and joy. He will help us to "Fight the Good Fight."

Opportunity of the Year

This is the opportunity of the year for the men of the Diocese to gather to renew their faith, to be inspired by the Holy Spirit and to experience the brotherhood and sharing that has characterized each of the prior Conferences.

Assist the Poor

This year we hope to assist the poor in our community and we request those that are able, to bring a non-perishable food donation with them to the Conference. Donations will be
collected at the entrance and later distributed to those in need.
