Catholic Men’s Conference ~ 2/16/2013

Worthy Knights,

I am writing to you today to seek your attendance and support for the 3rd Annual Charlotte Catholic Men’s Conference to be held on Saturday, February 16, 2013. This event is being sponsored by the Knights of Columbus State Council and is an prime example of the Knights mission to support church activities by spreading the Word throughout our Christian Community. The Men’s Conference not only has gained the participation and endorsement of Bishop Peter Jugis, but our Supreme Knight Carl Anderson has personally written to encourage all of us to attend and promote the event.

Last year, the conference brought over 700 men together for a day where many grew in faith. The day was a great day of pride for the Knights of Columbus and propelled many men to join the Knights of Columbus in our local Councils.

You can support the Men’s Conference in your Council in the following ways:
  • Attend the Men’s Conference: You will not regret spending this time on your faith and fellowship. You can see the conference information in the attached flyer, DOWNLOAD REGISTRATION FORM and can sign-up or get more information at Be sure to enter KOC in the promotional code to get the Knights discounted rate of $25.
  • Promote the Men’s Conference in your Council: Please e-mail this announcement to all your members with an encouragement to attend. Additionally, be sure to announce the Men’s Conference during your January and February business meetings. Consider manually signing up members at your meetings and sending in the registration forms together.
  • Invite other men to attend with you: The Men’s Conference is an outstanding forum to show prospective members a fantastic program sponsored by our organization. Additionally, inviting a friend is a practical way to fulfill our calling to evangelize.
  • Consider hosting a Men’s Forum in your Council: In addition to the Conference, we are encouraging Councils to host a Men’s Forum throughout the year. The Men’s Forum consists of recitation of the Rosary, a reflection from a priest, deacon, or lay person, and men’s fellowship. Hosting a Men’s Forum is one of the best gifts you can give to your council by bringing together your members, clergy, and prospective members all together to work on your faith as Catholic men. We will give more information at the State meetings and information is available on our website.
Thank you for your support of the 3rd Annual Charlotte Catholic Men’s Conference. If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact Dan Trapini at We hope to see you all on February 16.
Vivat Jesus!
