We are excited to announce the 2013 Catholic Men's Conference (CMC) on March 16. The schedule can be viewed under the CMC web page, although it is only tentative at this point.
Our keynote speaker will be radio host Jon Leonetti. As an international Catholic speaker, youth minister, parish mission leader and radio host, Jon has dedicated his life to spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ in a faithful, energetic, and humorous way to thousands everywhere. Jon’s first book entitled Mission of the Family is being published and featured by Matthew Kelly’s (author of Rediscovering Catholicism) ‘Dynamic Catholic Book Program’ and is set to be released in February, 2013. John will be speaking about :
It's Awesome to be Catholic!: Living our Faith With Commitment and Love
Love is a person. One who ‘walked our walk, talked our talk and died our death,’ one who rose from the dead and remains with us in the fullest of ways. Love is Jesus Christ. However, through the many struggles and distractions we encounter on this journey of love as a Catholic, it can be easy to compartmentalize or even remain indifferent to our faith. Discover the ways we can overcome distraction, indifference and idleness, passionately living our Catholic faith with a renewed vision in Jesus Christ, because It's Awesome to be Catholic!

When & Where
It's Awesome to be Catholic, Growing and Sharing our Faith!
The goal of the Louisville Catholic Men’s Conference is to help men throughout the archdiocese to become more deeply involved with their faith and in their parishes; to engage fully in service, evangelization and networking with others; to deepen their personal relationship with Jesus Christ; to share their Catholic faith with other men; and to seek answers to important life questions.
We address questions like: What should Catholic men do and be in today’s world? How can men strengthen their family life, work life, faith life? And how can men become better fathers, husbands and leaders?
The theme of this year’s conference on March 16, 2013 is “It's Awesome to be Catholic!” We will provide participants with an opportunity to respond and engage with this theme.
