2025 Men's Conference

Location TBD


Theme TBD




Invitation:

 

Dear Brothers in Christ,

 

You are cordially invited to join us for a special gathering of men at the Lavaca Catholic Men's Gathering, taking place on Monday, April 22. As we continue to journey together in faith, we are thrilled to follow up on the year’s Diocese theme: "THIS IS MY BODY - THIS IS MY BLOOD." Experience what a Deanery level Men’s group can look like, celebrate Mass, and enjoy the fellowship of like minded Catholic Men.

 

This theme speaks to the heart of our Catholic faith, focusing on the profound mystery and gift of the Holy Eucharist. Through the celebration of the Mass, we are called to encounter the real presence of Jesus Christ in the consecrated bread and wine. It is a sacred moment where we are nourished, strengthened, and transformed by His love and grace.

 

Our guest speaker for the evening will be Father Luke Prihoda, Parochial Vicar of St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Schulenburg. Father Luke will guide us in a deeper exploration of the Eucharist and its significance in our spiritual lives.

 

Join us for Mass at 6:30 PM, followed by a meal and program from 7:00 to 8:30 PM. This will be an opportunity for fellowship, learning, and spiritual growth among brothers in Christ.

 

Date: Monday, April 22

Location: Queen of Peace Catholic Church, Sweet Home, Texas

 

We look forward to welcoming you and sharing in this sacred journey of faith together. Let us come together as men of God, united in our devotion to the Eucharist and our commitment to living as disciples of Jesus Christ.

 

Please email dovmensgroup@gmail.com by Monday April 15 if you plan to attend. There is no cost for this event, but we do need a count for the meal.

Catechism of the Catholic Church 

Catechism of the Catholic  Church 1380 

It is highly fitting that Christ should have wanted to remain present to his Church in this unique way. Since Christ was about to take his departure from his own in his visible form, he wanted to give us his sacramental presence; since he was about to offer himself on the cross to save us, he wanted us to have the memorial of the love with which he loved us “to the end,”29 even to the giving of his life. In his Eucharistic presence he remains mysteriously in our midst as the one who loved us and gave himself up for us,30 and he remains under signs that express and communicate this love:

The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us not refuse the time to go to meet him in adoration, in contemplation full of faith, and open to making amends for the serious offenses and crimes of the world. Let our adoration never cease.
