2022 Catholic Men's Conference Re-Cap

The 25th Annual Catholic Men's Conference returned to Kasich Hall at the Ohio Expo Center and State Fairgrounds on February 26, 2022.

We were humbled to host nearly 2000 men – in-person – during a day filled with incredible  speakers and faith-strengthening offerings such as Adoration, Reconciliation and Mass.

THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS is this year's complementary theme as we dedicate this Conference to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Immaculate Heart of Mary, and the Holy Family. Through their intercession – and our consecration to them – we can experience a love and strength like no other, and walk with confidence on the path to Sainthood.

We invite you to listen to the day or watch the entire Conference video from the links below – and follow along with the digital program download.
