Milwaukee Men of Christ 2015 Conference - March 14th

Well, well.  A special surprise for this years conference!
We start and end with Christ! Optional Mass at 7:00 A.M. with Fr. Rick Heilman.
Closing Mass at 4:00 P.M. with Archbishop Listecki.
And sound the trumpets!
Gregorian Chant by the male Knights of Divine Mercy Schola Cantorum will elevate our Masses.
Speakers
Fr. Larry Richards
Straight talk from one of the best messengers evangelizing Men of all ages about the need for male leadership.

John Pridmore
From London’s criminal underworld, drug deals, and vicious crime of all sorts, John’s powerful story demonstrates God’s mercy.

Devin Schadt
This husband, father, and author will speak about the necessity and power of fatherhood. Devin is the co-founder of the Fathers of St. Joseph.
John Pridmore is really good, I think he was a speaker the first year I went. ... Meh... Fr. Larry, well, alot of people like him on Relevant Radio...  I haven't heard Devin Schadt before, but he's(new?) from Catholic Answers.  Regardless of speakers though, 3,000+ Catholic men together for a day conference is pretty powerful stuff!  90+ priests hearing Confessions!!

I'm trying to decide which conference to go to this year.  Lent is only a month away!   Madison is probably more in my wheelhouse.  I haven't yet been to Esto Vir in Green Bay/Appleton yet, and I'd really like to make the trip one of these years.  It has been a few years since I went to Men of Christ and I do miss Milwaukee(really).  Day trips for Brewers games just don't suffice.  I need to go kiss my basilica, it's been too long.
