There has been a change in location for the first-ever Rochester Catholic Men’s Conference.
The conference has been moved from St. John Fisher College in Pittsford to St. Jude the Apostle Church in Gates.
The conference will be held Saturday, May 16, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Bishop Salvatore R. Matano will begin the event by celebrating Mass at 8 a.m. Three popular national Catholic speakers are scheduled to follow:
* Tim Staples is the director of apologetics and evangelization at Catholic Answers, a lay-run organization based in California. Staples converted to the Catholic faith in 1988 and is known for the humor and enthusiasm of his presentations.
* Danny Abramowicz, a former All-Pro football player for the New Orleans Saints, is the founder of Crossing the Goal Ministries, an evangelical outreach to Catholic men. He also serves on the board of directors of Eternal Word Television Network.
* Hector Molina, known as "The Motivangelist" (motivator/evangelist), is a veteran keynote speaker who has conducted numerous parish seminars, workshops, missions and retreats — in English and Spanish — across the United States and abroad.
There are still spots available for the conference. Tickets are $50 per person and available at exultrochester.org.
