As Catholic men we are called to be men of virtue, role models, and servant leaders. We “contribute to the sanctification of the world, as from within like leaven”. (Christifideles Laici, 15).

Join your fellow Catholic men for the sixth annual East Bay Catholic Men’s Conference, to better learn how to practically live out our call.

Be encouraged and challenged by top Catholic leaders in our roles as Catholic men. Deepen your understanding of what it means to be a Catholic man in today’s society. Be supported by, and be supportive of, your brothers in the Faith.

Space is limited — early registration is recommended
