About the 2023 Catholic Men’s Conference in Springfield MO
Uniting Men Beyond the Conference
We continued to build bonds of friendship at the fourth annual conference. Keynote speaker Matthew Leonard challenged every man to work toward sainthood—which can sound daunting. But he noted Christ’s encouragement: “For human beings, this is impossible, but for God, all things are possible.” The goal of this year’s conference is that all attendees begin meeting weekly with a small group of like-minded men to form sincere, trusted, and faithful friendships. Meetings can follow a structured “small group” program such as those provided by authors like Leonard. Men could also develop their own activities such as Scripture study, group prayer, or simply discussing daily life through the lens of faith.
