CV NEWS FEED // A men’s conference in Northeast Ohio is set for early March and will feature an apologist, a Dominican, and a bishop speaking on experiencing Jesus in the Eucharist.
The Catholic Men’s Fellowship of Northeast Ohio holds an annual daylong conference for men of all ages, both lay and religious. According to an article from the Diocese of Cleveland, this year’s theme is “Experience Jesus in the Eucharist,” which ties into the USCCB’s National Eucharistic Revival.
Steve Chrzanowski, president of the Fellowship, said that the Eucharist “is God’s invitation to come find him, the only one who can truly fulfill the deepest desires of our hearts.”
At the conference, Catholic Answers apologist Joe Heschmeyer, Fr. Thomas Blau, OP, and Cleveland’s Auxiliary Bishop Michael Woost will speak on the Eucharist. In addition, the conference is set to include adoration, confession, and a closing Mass celebrated by Bishop Woost.
According to the Diocese of Cleveland, Herschmeyer is also a blogger, religious instructor, author, and co-host of “The Catholic Podcast.”
Fr. Blau was ordained a Dominican priest in 1999 and is now a missionary preacher in the Diocese of Columbus. He is also the founder of St. Barnabas Ministry, an organization that sends Dominican priests to take over a parish for a few days so the pastor can go on vacation or retreat.
In addition to serving as the auxiliary bishop for the Diocese of Cleveland, Bishop Woost also teaches sacramental-liturgical theology at Saint Mary Seminary in Wickliffe.
