“Only in Christ can men and women find answers to the ultimate questions that trouble them. Only in Christ can they fully understand their dignity as persons created and loved by God.”
St. John Paul II
This conference is meant to remind men of their God given responsibility, the power of conversion, and the impact one man can make.
We invite all men to attend our Chicago Catholic Men’s conference, “A Man Among Men”. Our hope is we can help ignite their apostolic fire through the conference and provide opportunities for them to connect to our local Catholic movements to further their walk with Christ.
An Invitation From Our Keynote Speaker, Dr Jorge Valdés
Highlights From Our 2019 Event
We live in a wounded world full of people needing to connect to something good. Society has also worked tirelessly in diminishing the example Christ the man provided for men.
Dads of school children can have a special impact in these formative years
Parishes and Lay Ecclesial Movements
Provides their community an opportunity to grow spiritually
Friends & Family
It is our hope for attendees to invite other men to join them on this journey
Today’s men can live out their masculinity, fatherhood, and brotherhood as Christ has taught us. We invite men to deepen their faith and renew their commitment to being the best man they can be. Our engaging speakers were selected to remind us of our responsibility, the power of conversion, and the impact a good man can make.

“Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my arms for battle, who prepares my hands for war. ”
— PSALM 144:1
“Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands through which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are his body. Christ has no body now on earth but yours.”
— ST. TERESA OF AVILA
We expect 1,000 Christian brothers to attend, learning how to protect themselves and their family from the pitfalls of this wounded world.
