Although attendees will not be able to gather in person for the 2021 Catholic Men’s Conference, the virtual event will include all the hallmarks of previous conferences.
The first session of the daylong program, presented by the Catholic Men’s Fellowship of Northeast Ohio, begins at 9 a.m. March 13 with prayer and reflection.
The day will include a presentation by Peter Herbeck of Renewal Ministries on “A Call to Holiness.” Greg Wasinski of Let Me Be Ministries, will speak on the Eucharist and Deacon Larry Oney’s topic will be “Hope and Transformation.”
Father Michael McCandless, director of the diocesan Vocation Office, will offer a Lenten reflection and Gary Zimak will discuss how to “Give up Worry for Lent.”
Bishop Edward Malesic will address the conference in a pre-recorded message.
Bill Prebel, president of the Catholic Men’s Fellowship of Northeast Ohio, said the group’s goal is to develop and promote Catholic Christian culture – an atmosphere in which the Catholic faith can flourish and bear fruit -- “wherever and however we can.”
