Fourth annual E6 Catholic Men’s Conference to be held on Feb. 23

Criterion staff report

The fourth annual E6 Catholic Men’s Conference will take place from 8 a.m.‑3 p.m. on Feb. 23 at East Central High School in St. Leon.

Organized by members of All Saints Parish in Dearborn County, the conference will feature presentations by Mark Hart, Trent Horn and Justin Fatica.

The executive vice president of Life Teen International, Hart is an internationally known Catholic author and speaker. A regular guest on Catholic radio programs, he has developed the popular “T3” Scripture study program. Hart’s writings and speaking are marked by his humor and enthusiasm for Scripture.

A convert to Catholicism, Horn is a staff apologist at the El Cajon, Calif.‑based Catholic Answers. Horn has given presentations around the world on how Catholics can give positive and persuasive explanations about the faith to those that disagree with them. He is a regular guest on Catholic Answers’ radio show, “Catholic Answers Live.”

Fatica has spoken to more than 2 million people since the 2002 founding of Hard as Nails Ministries, which he serves as executive director. A guest on numerous secular and religious TV network shows, Fatica is also the best-selling author of five books.

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. Father Jonathan Meyer, pastor of All Saints Parish, is scheduled to be the principal celebrant of the conference Mass.

Registration for the conference will begin at 6:30 a.m.

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

Advance registration for the conference is $40 per person, $60 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.

Lunch will be provided for all conference participants.
