Living lives of faith is the focus of this much-anticipated annual event. Men of all ages gather together for a day of inspiration, education, challenge, community, and prayer. During the day, a number of the area's most faith-filled clergy and lay men share their thoughts about the opportunities and challenges facing men today, along with a keynote address from a man of deep faith and integrity, former head coach of the Green Bay Packers, Mike Sherman.

Given limited seating in the Abbey, registration is on a first come, first served basis. Be sure to register early! Last year's event was a sellout.

7 Habits of Highly Effective Disciples

In Baptism we were given five calls: the call to maturity, the call to holiness, the call to community, the call to service, and the call to generosity. As disciples of the Lord, we respond to these calls by developing certain habits, certain virtues that enable us to become effective disciples of the Lord. Seven habits will be discussed regarding our call to discipleship.

Death to New Life: Transformation of a Father-Son Relationship

John weaves a powerful and dynamic tapestry of the Father-Son relationship in Sacred Scripture and Christian tradition, literature, his personal experience, and as a clinical social worker and professional consultant.
