Comments from Men’s 2015 Conference
The ideas and thoughts were practical and relevant to every day life.
I liked the stories speakers used to share their messages with us.
I appreciate knowing we are not alone in our faith journey.
Great messages for the Lenten Season.
Many messages hit close to home.
2016 Men's Conference Speakers & Talks:
Rev. Michael Phillips
Fr. Phillips is a retired priest of the Davenport Diocese. This year marks his 47th anniversary: serving half of those years in education and half as a pastor. He loves being a priest and continues to minister in a variety of ways.
What Does it Mean to be a Real Christian Man?: Beginning in Genesis with God’s creating man in his own image and giving him stewardship over creation, Fr. Phillips explores the Christian man’s vocation and responsibilities, specifically given to him by God.
Being a Man of Mercy: In this Year of Mercy, Pope Francis has called each of us to open our hearts to God’s mercy and become effective signs of His mercy. Fr. Phillips helps us rediscover our need for God’s forgiveness and mercy and to be bearers of it in the world.
Devin lives in the Midwest with his wife and five children. He is an author and speaker who transmits the message of the necessity and power of fatherhood. He is the cofounder of the Fathers of St. Joseph, an apostolate that works for the renewal of authentic fatherhood.
Show Us the Father: Secrets to Becoming a Father on Earth, Like the Father in Heaven: A Father’s mission is be a link between Heaven and Earth, between God and his children. He becomes the voice of the Father his children cannot hear, the face they cannot see, the touch they cannot feel. This is his challenge and his call to glory.
What if Every Man Discovered His True Identity, Power & Necessity? Devin’s talk will help men enter the battle, fully armed, with the bold commitment to sacrifice themselves for their wives, children and future of humanity by becoming like St. Joseph.
Nathaniel converted to Catholicism while at Loras College on track and football scholarships. He spent a year with the Dominican Order discerning religious life, served in campus ministry at Loras College and now teaches theology at Wahlert Catholic High. Nathaniel speaks at many Catholic events & conferences.
Personal Encounter with God’s Mercy: Focused on academics and athletics, Nathaniel didn’t consider spiritual growth to be part of his college experience. Through his conversion and the sacraments, Nathaniel experienced God’s Holy Love, which transformed his life.
Intimacy with God: God desires to enter into a personal friendship with each of us. Learn how, as Pope Francis says to: “unfailingly encounter Jesus every day-no one should think this invitation is not for him.” We begin with an openness to Jesus, which leads to a life changing relationship.
