Taft_Theater_Cincinnati.pngThe Cincinnati Men's Conference is back and will be hosted at Cincinnati's gorgeous Taft Theatre!  The Catholic Speakers Organization, CMG Booking, and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati have teamed up to bring back America's first Catholic Men's Conference ever organized and produced.  Both organizations are more than excited about the spiritual benefit the conference will bring to the greater Cincinnati community.  What is equally exciting is the speaker lineup for the event, where some of the most renowned Catholic speakers were honored to join the roster.  Everyone is welcome to attend no matter what religious belief or where you are in your journey of faith.   

The Theme of the 2018 conference is "Be A Man! What It Means To Be A True Christian Man In Today's Society".  The day will be filled with 4 lectures from 4 different speakers pertaining to being the best version of a man we can be via true Christian ideals giving us the tools to become the best brother, son, father, spouse, manager or leader to our fellow man.  How are we expected to act as good Christian men in today's modern society and what are the non-negotiables for good Christian men trying to be authentic examples of Christ to the rest of the world?

There will also be a very special recognition ceremony honoring the original team of men who created and organized the first Catholic Men's Conference ever.  Did you know that Cincinnati was the first city to put on what we know today as a Catholic Men's Conference?  Those men will be in attendance and will be recognized for their incredible contributions to the Catholic community and evangelization as a whole.

The Cincinnati Men’s Conference is calling men together to energize their faith and motivate them to be missionary disciples. As Archbishop of Cincinnati, I am pleased to welcome the Conference as a partner with us in the New Evangelization. I encourage every man in the Archdiocese to attend this one-day event that could have lasting impact.”
