Amarillo—All men in the Diocese of Amarillo are invited to attend and participate in the sixth annual Men’s Conference, which will take place Saturday, Sept. 17 at Bishop Zurek Parish Hall at Blessed Sacrament Church, 2500 South Bolton.
The keynote speaker for the conference will be Mark Houck, president and co-founder of The King’s Men. Houck will present two talks—the first on the Four Qualities of a Courageous, Christian Man and St. Joseph: Model of Courage.
The theme for this year’s conference is from 2 Samuel 10:12: “Hold firm and let us show ourselves courageous for the sake of our people and the cities of our God; and may the Lord do what is good in His sight.”
Registration begins at 8:00am, with Morning Prayer at 8:30. The conference will wrap up with the 5:00pm Mass at Blessed Sacrament Church.
Since 2006, Mark Houck has spoke to thousands of men about a variety of topics related to the development of authentic masculinity. He has written numerous articles, brochures and publications on the topics of pornography, homosexuality, abortion, teen sexuality, parenting and masculine spirituality.
“We invite all men in the Diocese of Amarillo to join us at Blessed Sacrament Church on Saturday, Sept. 17 for a conference that make a difference in all who attend and participate,” said conference spokesperson Omar Ramos. “This will be a day that will make our men better fathers, better husbands and better servants of Christ. We look forward to seeing you.”
