    2011 Chicago Catholic Men’s Conference, March 19, 2011

    It has been a grace to work with the Catholic Men of Chicago on this year’s Conference.  This day is the culmination of many months of prayerful preparation and hard work on the part of many dedicated Catholic men who have a heart for sharing the Good news of Jesus Christ with other men.

    Be men of courage; be strong

    As many are aware, there are three over-lapping facets to Catholics Come Home Chicago: Invitation, Welcoming and Accompaniment.  On March 20, 2010, the Office for Evangelization is holding a Catholic Men’s Conference, an ideal “accompaniment” for men!  This Conference will feature notable speakers in two identical tracks: one in English and the other in Spanish!  Participants will come together for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, private and communal prayer, and Mass celebrated by His Eminence Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I.  We believe direct follow-up is necessary for the continued success of the Catholics Come Home Chicago evangelization initiative, and this Conference is that follow-up!
