Indiana’s Largest Catholic Conference For Men Meets In Fort Wayne

More than 1,000 Catholic men of all ages will fill the Fort Wayne Coliseum Expo Center on February 19-20, 2016 for the largest gathering of Catholic men in Indiana – the Rekindle The Fire Annual Diocesan Men’s Conference.

For the sixth year in a row, Rekindle The Fire will be a dynamic, spirit-building conference that will help men grow closer to Christ. This year’s conference, highlighted by the theme “Battling Your Goliath,” will equip these men with the armor and tools to battle their own Goliath and lead them to become better leaders, friends, husbands, fathers and sons.

New to the conference this year is the addition of “interactive battle sessions” with each keynote speaker. The conference begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday with nationally renowned Catholic speakers Matt Fradd, Jesse Romero and Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio. The Most Reverend Kevin C. Rhoades, Bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend will preside over Mass. The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available as well as informational booths on the various ministries throughout the Diocese.

The cost to attend the Rekindle The Fire is $35 and includes lunch and coffee. To register for the conference, visit or call 260-452-6875.
