All Catholic men ages 16 and older are invited to the sixth annual Maine Catholic Men's Conference, which will be held Saturday, October 28, 2017 at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, 307 Congress Street in Portland. The conference will feature a closing Mass celebrated by Bishop Robert P. Deeley, and a keynote address by Eric Mahl.
Mahl played professional football for the Cleveland Browns and the New York Jets, but he longed to live a life centered on his faith. He says he didn't have the courage to step away from the sport, so he prayed that he would be cut. In 2005, only 10 minutes after praying before the Blessed Sacrament, he got his wish. He says, even though it was what he wanted, the news still brought him to tears. Soon, however, he says he felt a tremendous sense of freedom. He got a job that required less of his time so that he can devote more of it to the Lord and spreading the message of Christ's divine mercy.
In addition to Mahl's address, the men's conference will also feature a talk from William Martel, who will provide some insight on evangelization in the workplace, and from Father Steven Cartwright, parochial vicar of Prince of Peace Parish, Lewiston, who will speak about eucharistic adoration and his vocation to the priesthood.
