Catholic Men's Conference

Friday & Saturday
March 16–17, 2018

Find answers and peace.
This is a weekend for you; step away from the busyness and stress of your daily routine.
Every man is welcome. You don’t have to be perfect to begin anew in Christ.

Thanks to Pilgrim Center of Hope’s benefactors, we can offer this evangelization ministry at low cost to attendees.

Unload your heavy baggage at Jesus’ feet. Encounter him in our Friday night Eucharistic Healing Service. Receive his peace in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Find strength in a brotherhood with men who are striving to follow Christ.
