Rekindle The Fire Men’s Conference in Fort Wayne

Join us on February 22, 2020 at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum!  Come experience Christ’s love through life-changing talks by nationally known Catholic speakers, confession, and Mass with Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades.

Trying to be a faithful Christian man in today’s world is challenging. But while it feels like there’s an unending assault of negative forces attacking us and our families, Christ never abandons us. Every day of our lives we are called to take God everywhere we go: our homes, work, the gym, the mall and every other place we enter. It may sound overwhelming or unpopular. But, God equips each one of us with the courage, wisdom, and strength to “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature,” through word and action.
