Dear Brothers in Christ:
As we continue our Lenten Journey, I wanted to remind you of three exciting opportunities to enrich our faith in the upcoming weeks:
The St. Ann’s / HMC Christian Experience Weekend on March 1-3.
Madison Diocese Retreat
Christian Experience Weekend
Men of Christ Conference
It’s a good down to earth conference that has had attendance of over 3,000 men. National speakers such as Joe Lombardi (grandson of Vince Lombardi), Joe McClane (founder of The Catholic Hack website) and Bob Dolan (brother of Archbishop and long-shot papal candidate, Timothy Dolan) and others. The speakers have be awesome and inspiring talking about men’s issues and our call to be real men in our culture. They put it the way it is and are true to the church.
This year one of the speakers is Steve Bollman, the founder of TMIY. The day starts in prayer in the morning with the conference kicking off at 9AM. There is also a 7:00 Mass with Archbishop Listecki (Milwaukee) if you want to come early.
About 100 priests volunteer to come and hear confessions over lunch – this has been very rewarding for both the priests and men who have attended the conference. One or two more speakers in the afternoon followed by Mass with Bishop Hying. It is a long, but very rewarding day.
The Conference is at the Milwaukee Theater in downtown Milwaukee. I am trying to rearrange my schedule to attend. We are also looking to coordinate carpools with the TMIY group in Waunakee.
