2016 Catholic Men’s Conference summary

During the very first week of Lent, our annual Catholic Men’s Conference (CMC) was a spiritual success with 800+ men in attendance. Photos are now online. This year, we had an “Evening with the Lord” Friday before the conference, to give men a chance to go to Confession and spend time in Adoration. We think this will be a good plan for our future conferences.

The theme of the CMC—”Master, I want to see”—acknowledges our need to grow in faith so that we can discover God’s plan, which brings us great happiness. Archbishop Gustavo echoed this as he called the participants to be Men of Courage!

We continue to receive CMC evaluation forms containing extraordinary remarks about how the Conference is impacting men and their families! This event was a success because of your prayers, the dedication of the CMC Steering Committee and our “partners”; the volunteers who made a commitment to do what needed to be done. Thank you.


One of the resources given to every man who attended is a book especially for men written by Deacon Tom: Son of Man to Man. This book is now on sale for $9.95. Call the Pilgrim Center of Hope to order your copies: (210) 521-3377.

This year, we had one of our highest-rated speaker lineups, including Fr. Donald Calloway, Fr. Clay Hunt, and Jon Leonetti. The speakers’ powerful presentations can be ordered on CD or MP3. Download the Order Form from our website.
