.- Bishop John Smith of Trenton and U.S. House Representative Chris Smith are two of the headliners at this year’s Catholic Men for Jesus Rally in New Jersey.
This is the 10th annual rally, aimed at inspiring Catholic men to proclaim, live and defend their faith.
It will be held at St. Veronica School Gym in Howell, N.J., located in the Diocese of Trenton, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
For the 10th year, Bishop Smith will celebrate and preach at the closing mass. Other speakers, in addition to Chris Smith, include Joe Burke, president of Paraclete Enterprises and famed pilot who broke the sound barrier flying the F- 14, and Ed and Eddie Reinhardt, a father-and-son team from Colorado who will discuss the importance of marriage, family and forgiveness.
"We are encouraging all fathers, sons, and grandfathers to show that Catholic men will stand up and be counted," said organizer Jim Manhardt.
