E6 Catholic Men’s Conference set for February 26 in St. Leon

By Sean Gallagher

The seventh annual E6 Catholic Men’s Conference will take place from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on Feb. 26 in the auditorium of East Central High School, 1 Trojan Place, in St. Leon.

Sponsored by All Saints Parish in Dearborn County, “E6” in the conference’s title refers to the sixth chapter of St. Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians in which the Apostle calls believers to take up “the armor of God” in the spiritual fight against the devil (Eph 6:11).

The conference this year will feature speakers Matthew Kelly, Gus Lloyd and Father Vincent Lampert.

Kelly, a native of Australia, is a husband and father of five children. He is also a writer and Catholic speaker who has been heard by more than 5 million people in more than 50 countries. Kelly is the founder of the Cincinnati-based Dynamic Catholic Institute.

Lloyd is the host of “Seize the Day,” a morning radio show on Sirius XM’s The Catholic Channel. He is also the author of several books on the Catholic faith and speaks at conferences and parishes across the country.

Father Lampert, pastor of St. Michael Parish in Brookville and St. Peter Parish in Franklin County, has also served as archdiocesan exorcist since 2005. He has ministered as an exorcist and spoken about his experiences around the world. Father Lampert has also written a book, Exorcism: The Battle against Satan and His Demons, about the spiritual lessons he’s gained in his exorcism ministry.

“All of our speakers are well known and are well equipped to help men to be saints—the best version of themselves,” said Father Jonathan Meyer, pastor with Father Daniel Mahan in solidum of All Saints. “Their joy and conviction is contagious.”

In addition to presentations by the speakers, the conference will include Mass, the availability of the sacrament of penance throughout the day and prayer between the sessions. Lunch will also be provided for attendees.

Like last year, this year’s E6 conference will also be available via livestream.

“Anyone can register and view it with their family, friends, men’s group or entire parish, for only $10 per group,” said conference organizer Joe Yunder, a member of All Saints Parish. “An e-mail will be sent with a livestream link a few days before the conference, which will make it easy for anyone to tune in and be a part of it.”

To attend in person, the registration fee for men 25 years and older is $40. For high school and college students (men under 25), the cost is $25. Clergy and religious may attend at no cost.

Father Meyer said the relevance of the conference for Catholic men is all the more clear considering the challenges they face in today’s society.

“Continuing to come out of and still live in a COVID culture requires men to be bold in their faith,” he said. “Isolation, depression and frustration are on a rise. Men need each other and the Lord to stand strong in these difficult times. They also need in-person events to be brothers.”

“The E6 Catholic Men’s conference is a platform to listen to the world’s greatest Catholic speakers live,” said Yunger, “to meet like-minded men and grow in Christian brotherhood and to obtain resources to help with their respective vocations and to lead their family as the domestic priest that they are in their household.”
