Subject: Diocesan Men’s Conference | Early Bird Registration Closes Soon
After that date, registration will be available at the door for $50. Permanent Deacons who register by August 31 can attend for $30.
The Conference will be held on Saturday, September 10th at the Double Tree Hotel in Williamsburg from 9:00am-5:00pm.
The conference theme, “Fully Alive,” plays on Jesus’ invitation throughout the Gospel to an abundant life. As a man, husband, father, brother, and friend how is Jesus calling you to be more fully alive. Above all else, our culture values the freedom to pursue our own happiness, to choose whatever lifestyle, relationship, or path we think will make us the most happy. The invitation of Jesus is to consider this: our freedom exists so that we can give ourselves away. The paradox of the Christian life is that when we empty ourselves, follow Jesus, and participate in His life we become fully alive. Sean Forrest and Father Damian Ference will be the keynote speakers. Additionally, at the conference there will be several priests available for confession. We will celebrate the vigil Mass together at 4:00pm. And, this year, we will offer breakout session in the late morning.
Hope you can join us again this year. It will be a great conference.
