Gathering as Men

“Many of the men that attend regular meetings of parish fellowship meeting have had an
encounter with the person of Jesus Christ at some point in their lives. That encounter, as it has been told in thousands of meetings, is as varied and diverse as life itself. For many it marked a milestone event – a significant moment in which the man giving witness came
to know the reality of the living Christ as he has never before experienced. For some the encounter was the defining moment – a moment of pure grace that made faith in Jesus Christ a compelling belief. For others the encounter with Jesus was a gradual commitment, a combination of many moments of grace that joined to make an undeniable mosaic of God’s goodness.”

“Why Men Get Together” (From Catholic Men’s Fellowship Cincinnati)

Saturday, February 27, 2010 men from all over the Diocese of Syracuse will gather to share, pray and experience the fellowship of being a Catholic man. Ignite 2010 Catholic Men’s Conference will offer three nationally acclaimed speakers:  Jesse Romero, Fr. Larry Richards and Sean Forrest as well as our own Bishop Robert J. Cunningham.

Plan to attend and be part of a day-long experience geared for men, enriching our faith experiences and helping to build God’s Kingdom!

Centering on Jesus

As we enter the season of Lent centering our lives on Jesus enables us to enter into a renewal of faith… a conversion of heart opening us to the salvific act of Jesus.

Deacon Tim McNerney’s homily at St. Paul Church in Norwich, New York on the Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time is based upon Jeremiah 17:5-8 and the Gospel of Luke, Ch 6:17,20-26. If you’d would like to listen to Dc. Tim’s homily, click the link below.
