Annual E6 Catholic Men’s Conference set for Feb. 24

Criterion staff report

The third annual E6 Catholic Men’s Conference will take place from 8 a.m.‑3 p.m. on Feb. 24 at East Central High School in St. Leon.

Organized by a chapter of King’s Men, a men’s prayer and education group at All Saints Parish in Dearborn County, the conference will feature presentations by clinical psychologist, author and radio host Dr. Ray Guarendi; Father Larry Richards, a priest of the Diocese of Erie, Pa., and an internationally known speaker, author and retreat leader; and Father Jonathan Meyer, pastor of All Saints Parish.

The title of the conference is taken from the sixth chapter of St. Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians, which calls on the faithful to “put on the armor of God” (Eph 6:11) in their spiritual battle against evil.

In addition to the speakers, the conference will include the celebration of the Mass, the opportunity to participate in the sacrament of penance, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction. Archbishop Charles C. Thompson is scheduled to be the principal celebrant of the Mass.

Registration for the conference will begin at 7 a.m., Lunch will be provided for conference participants.

The speakers will participate in a question-and-answer session in addition to giving their own presentations.

Last year’s conference drew more than 800 participants from across Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky.

Duane Meyer, a conference organizer and member of All Saints Parish and St. Lawrence Parish in Lawrenceburg, said he hopes that “the conference can bring men into a deeper relationship with Christ, help men to have healthy engaging talks about their faith with other men and their family, and inspire them to be better husbands and fathers.”

Advance registration for the conference is $45 per person, $50 on the day of the conference and $15 per person for high school and college students. Clergy and religious may attend free of charge, but must register online. Members of the Knights of Columbus can register online for $35, using the promotional code “kofc35.”
