In The Father's Footsteps 23
For the 23rd annual installment of Oklahoma's Catholic Men's Conference, we're pleased to welcome Jason Everett, Fr. Larry Richards, Fr. Roger Landry and Jon Leonetti to help us build the bridge from repentance to faithfulness.
Our conference day will begin with a powerful examination of the lives we live – our challenges, temptations and obstacles. We'll gain insights an tools throughout the day and move toward a clear vision of how to claim the lives we're called to live – lives forged by the way and the truth, built upon bedrock values and placed in service to God, family and faith. This is truly the Good Life!
IN THE FATHER'S FOOTSTEPS 22
We hope everyone made it home safely and filled with inspiration from Saturday's conference.Thank you so much for taking time from your schedule to be with us and to continue our journey together as men desiring to be the best we can be.
Called To Be Saints. So many of you have told us what a great day you experienced and how much you enjoyed this year's speakers. We started our day by getting a more complete picture of Blessed Stanley Rother - the amazing story of an Oklahoma farm boy who grew to become the man we know today... a man headed towards sainthood on the strength of his love for Christ and his perseverance. Blessed Stanley's story, as seen through the lens of each speaker's talk, is a reminder that we are called to grow in our relationship with Christ. We are called to live out our baptismal charge to love God and to spread His Good News. Blessed Stanley's story shows us a path to go from ordinary to the extraordinary and make clear the possibilities when we answer to call - the call to be saints!
Where Two Or More Are Gathered. Each year, we remind attendees, if this one day was your mountaintop experience - a climb to the summit that lasted only fleeting moments - then you've missed part of the message our speakers shared.
- Are in a men's group at your parish? If so, what can your group do to bring more men into a relationship with Jesus Christ?
- If there is no men's group at your parish, how can you form one? We strongly encourage you to visit with your pastor and discuss a plan to bring men together for the purpose of starting a group where inspiration, education and fellowship can make a difference in men's lives. If we can help with that, please don't hesitate to reach out.
There are many tools available to help you navigate from the mountop back through the desert plains. It just takes two or three men to say "Yes, I can do that," and you'll have formed a bond that will motivate its members and help to hold each member accountable. Remember, where two or more are gathered, there is Christ in our midst.
Have a Blessed Lent and a Joyful Easter! We wish you a Blessed Lent and the renewal that comes from sacrifice, prayer and giving. We wish you a Happy Easter and the joy that comes as you immerse yourself in the journey from Easter Sunday through Pentecost.
Peace to each of you!

A MESSAGE AND AN INVITATION FROM PATRICK COFFIN
Dear Brothers in Christ,
It was an honor to be with you in Norman on March 3rd for Oklahoma's Catholic Men's Conference. [It was also fun to wrestle with the sound system, which, in my experience, is a favored method of the evil one to disrupt the message of healing and restoration of men.]
My Free Gift to You. Since the free MP3 version of my talk didn't "take" technically, I want to offer my free e-booklet, "Once Saved, Not Always Saved: Catholic Teaching Explained." The tradition of men known as the eternal security theory is popular among any Protestant groups. This free booklet gives you a ton of biblical and logical ammo to explain the Catholic understanding of what it means to be saved.
Connect With Me Online. Checkout the show in iTunes and YouTube HERE (it's all about faith and culture with a dash of comedy), and sign up for my free newsletter HERE, The Inside Scoopfor all your manly faith-building needs.
Pilgrimage Opportunity. Also, if you know of anyone would like to join us last minute on our pilgrimage to Italy, we have land-packages still available. Click HERE to see the flyer for the land-only prices! Link to register is HERE.
Keep in touch!
