From John McCulla:
Could you pass this on to our SBMM members? This is a nice day of faith and fellowship with men of faith from across the Diocese. Included below is interesting information on the pre-conference as well.

The conference is free for all priests and religious brothers. Permanent Deacons who register before midnight on January 12, 2016 will receive admission to the conference for only $30. Register today!
New this year! On Friday night before the conference we are hosting an informal roundtable discussion to explore ways and best practices for establishing and sustaining solid men's ministry in the parish. This pre-conference event includes a bourbon tasting and heavy hors d'oeuvres. It will be held at the Diocesan Pastoral Center on Friday, January 15 from 6:30pm - 9:00pm. This is a great opportunity for men in leadership roles from parishes around the diocese to exchange ideas about how to build solid men's ministry in a parish. The cost is only $10 per person to help cover the food and drinks. Space is limited to 70 participants, so reserve your spot today when you register for the main event. For your convenience, there is a block of hotel rooms available near the Pastoral Center at a discounted rate to accommodate any out-of-town attendees. Register for the pre-conference when you register for the main event today!
