“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you receive it, and you will.” Mark 11:24
Jesus Christ answered our prayers (and fasting), and gave us a tremendous blessing on Saturday, March 9, 2013. You witnessed and experienced a powerful sign of solidarity among Catholic men. Something we have not seen in a long time.
We collectively honored our God, repented from our sins, witnessed to our boys, prayed for our families, interceded for our church/country, and took our Lord into the streets of Milwaukee, as a sign of taking the light of Christ into the world. We stood “firm in our faith” and were all strengthened by God’s grace. Thank you all for being a part of something very special.
We have put together a short video as reminder of that Christ inspired day. Click the link:

Therefore, I say to you, the Kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people that will produce its fruit.”Mat 21:43
In today’s Gospel from St. Matthew, Jesus tells the parable of the landowner who planted a vineyard and entrusted it to tenants.When vintage time drew near, the landowner sent servants and later his own son to obtain his produce.The servants as well as his son were beaten, killed, and stoned by the tenants.Today, we use the word “stewards” rather than “tenants” to describe the Father’s call to us to work in the “vineyard” using the gifts He has bestowed on each of us in hope that we will produce fruit.If we do not produce fruit, the Kingdom of God will be taken away from us.Our eternal life with God in heaven is at stake!
Producing good fruit means knowing our faith, practicing our faith, sharing our faith with others, and, in the process, changing the world or, in other words, bringing the Kingdom of God to the here and now of this world.Without exception, this is a tall order for all of us!However, the need is never greater as we see secularism driving us, our families, our children, and our friends away from God.
There is no better time to commit to the training and grace that we need to be good stewards of the vineyard.The 2013 Men of Christ Conference will ignite our hearts and minds to enter into a fuller communion with Christ Jesus and His Church so that we become more faithful stewards.With dynamic speakers, opportunity for Reconciliation, Holy Mass, Eucharistic adoration and procession, an exhibit of Eucharistic Miracles, numerous ministry tables, and much, much more, the day is guaranteed to inspire you and nourish you with the training and grace to be better men, husbands, and fathers.Here is a sampling of what other men said about their experience at the 2012 conference!
There still is time for you to register for the conference!Bring your sons!They need to see your faith in action.Finally, it is never too late to invite your extended family and friends!
See you on the March 9!

February 2013 Leadership Followup
Written by Men of Christ
12 February 2013
We had an engaging and energetic discussion during Saturday’s leadership forum. Men voiced their concerns over the unprecedented attacks on our religious freedoms by our government, the “war of words” being waged in the media and Hollywood, and most importantly the fear we all have for our children’s future. As we reviewed these “realities” in detail, we also resolved to unite in solidarity as Catholic Christian men.
There is power in numbers, and we have created a mechanism for you personally to help reign in the culture of life. It was an exciting dialog of hope, and it reinforced the importance for each one of us to make a commitment to bring as many men as we possibly can to the March 9th event at the Milwaukee Theatre. We realize this day will provide a tremendous opportunity for each one of us to a stand together as Men of Christ in direct opposition to the assaults being waged on our families.
Based on this discussion and requests, the pricing discount has been extended to Tuesday, February 12th to give you more time to sign-up. You can register securely online here: register.
