On November 10, 2018, the Diocese of Camden will be hosting its first Men’s Spirituality Conference, called Man Up South Jersey.
This event has been held in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia for the past decade and Bishop Sullivan feels strongly that it will be a great resource on our side of the river, as we continue striving to spiritually revive and reinvigorate Catholic men across South Jersey.
Our mission is to provide a spiritual conference event for men that will allow them the opportunity to encounter Christ in a special way. So touched by this encounter, they will leave spiritually equipped to become better husbands, fathers, sons, employees … better men. And through the example of their lives they will be missionary disciples who lead others to the joy of a Christ-centered life.
This conference will feature world-class speakers who will focus on multiple topics throughout the day that will provide tips and examples of the benefit of making Jesus Christ a part of men’s daily lives.
Information will also be provided to help men start, facilitate, or support men’s Gospel Reflection Groups. “What is a Gospel Reflection Group?” Very simply, it’s a gathering of men just like you who seek to follow the will of God. It is typically a one hour weekly gathering of humble men and/or women, where a universal Gospel reading from one of the four Gospels is read. After a brief moment of reflection, a spontaneous sharing ensues of how this Gospel reading impacted the participant’s hearts, relative to their lives today. It has been said by one participant: “Miss a meal – yes. Miss the weekly Gospel Reflection – Never!”
