Cincinnati, Ohio, Mar 21, 2004 / 22:00 pm
Nearly 4,000 men, ranging from pre-teens to the elderly, attended the 10th annual Catholic Men's Conference, March 20, organized to help men grow in spiritual strength.
The conference was organized by the Catholic Men's Fellowship of Greater Cincinnati at Xavier University's Cintas Center under the theme “Answer the Call”.
Although the number of participants dropped by 1,500 from last year, it wasn’t obvious given the spirit of the event.
Declan O'Sullivan, trustee of the Catholic Men's Fellowship, told the Cincinnati Enquirer that the conference is designed to help men understand "they can't conquer evil on their own.” Some speakers emphasized that the issue at stake is freedom from evils prevalent in society, such as pornography, alcohol and drugs.
