Men's Conference

Commission for Men LogoArm yourselves with prayer rather than a sword; wear humility rather than fine clothes.
-Saint Dominic de Guzman

Scripture tells us, "Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another" (Proverbs 17:17). The Diocese of Allentown Commission for Men provides an annual opportunity for men to gather from across the Diocese for a time of prayer, fellowship, and sharpening. The Diocese of Allentown Men's Conference was begun in 2012 with about 180 men and has grown to over 600 men for the past several years! As a result of the Conference, friendships have been forged, local men's spirituality groups formed, marriages strengthened, and lives enriched.

Be an Ambassador for Christ to share the Good News with other Men:

“Be Ambassador for Christ”
What does it mean? Briefly, in St. Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians he tells them they are ambassadors for Christ.  As we know they are appointed to represent a country or cause, We by virtue of our Baptism are called to be witnesses of our faith in Christ. We live in a time of crisis in Faith, many no longer practice the faith. However, we have a unique opportunity to plant seeds of Faith in our annual conference and other days of spiritual renewal throughout the year. Your financial support helps to “Sustain“ our outreach in helping Men to live the Gospel message. Become Ambassadors for Christ - it will make a difference in leading men to Christ.
Thank You for your support.

Testimonials

"The conference was awesome. The speakers are great. The witnesses are inspiring, encouraging. It takes courage to share your experience and how God helped you to overcome a difficult time. But, by sharing your experience, you can help others."
-2017 Conference Attendee

"Being with 600+ men to grow in faith was moving and something I desperately want to experience again."
-2016 Conference Attendee

"Just when I think a previous conference can't get much better and I await an eventual disappointment, the conference planners arrange another outstanding group of presenters."
-2015 Conference Attendee

"I will attend this conference next year and every year that the Lord allows. It was uplifting, moreover, I came away wanting to do more, and be more of a Christian and Catholic."
