CT Catholic Men's Conference is This Saturday


I am writing this during a very hectic week as we prepare for the Connecticut Catholic Men’s conference on Saturday, October 19, 2019.  It’s not too late to buy your ticket (click here).  And if it is necessary you can purchase one at the door.  Please be sure to invite a friend.

Many homilies about gratitude were given recently because of the Gospel reading.  It had me thinking that so many good things happen after we act with gratitude.  Personally, I am grateful that our small committee becomes an integral part of this conference.  I am grateful for the persistent and consistent efforts put forward by these men - for the same reason that you and I volunteer at our parish—we wish others to be driven by the spiritual uplift that we receive by our efforts to bring the Men’s program to you. 

Lastly, we are grateful that you have recognized our efforts and want to join us and make this Event exciting, fulfilling, spiritual, and joyful.  Come and see.  Forge your path to holiness this Saturday.
God bless,

Ken Santopietro and the Men’s Conference committee
