Directly after yesterday’s show I headed to the 11th annual Catholic Men’s conference in Worcester. As usual it was packed. Also as usual there was a lot to see. UPDATE Photos we’ve got Photos
No Catholic event would be Catholic without a statue of our lady:
And St. Joseph was not left out either:
Several seminarians who had served at St. Anthony’s were present:
And there were interesting vendors including one selling sport rosaries:
There were some really great Franciscan Nuns with a table setup
The Doc never misses a conference
There are no shortages of devotions available to find for the faithful Catholic
The national organization for Marriage was there
And they had reason to smile after a big win in Maryland
Now lets go to the video…..
The Trivium school had a booth talking about the value of a classical education:
As always the Knight of Columbus were there:
And also as always there was a long line for confession because of the show I got there just as people were splitting for lunch and confession:
Because I got there so late I missed Mark Shea’s talk but he was kind enough to give me a few minutes:
He was one of the few people I talked to who had the “What’s the one reason to be Catholic?” question right and even volunteered it before I could ask.
One of the more exciting stories of the day was Catholic Radio coming to Fitchburg:
Because I got there so late I had to take a long shot of the ex mafia Captain who left la cosa nostra and embraced Christ:
but in the end, it’s not about the vendors or the lay groups, it’s about the individuals who attend and Dick was representatives.
Unfortunately I grabbed a bad set of batteries so when I went to change my set, I was without power, but in the end it was a great thing to see and I’m looking forward to hopefully doing the show live from there next year.
