The 2019 Connecticut Catholic Men’s Conference – What are You Longing For?
By Mark C. McCann The 2019 Connecticut Catholic Men’s Conference will be here before we know it. Our committee members share a passion to see Catholic men come to a deeper appreciation of their faith and to live that faith out in a more meaningful way.

We all have our pictures of what it means to be satisfied. For some, it is having the best of everything: the biggest house in the finest neighborhood, the mo...
