The Boston Catholic Men’s Conference was this past Saturday and it was a great success. About 2,000 men of all ages and vocations were present and they were charged by the end of the day.
First, it was great to meet so many of you. Guys kept coming up to me all day to say they read the blog and how much they enjoy. You don’t know how much that means to me. It also reminds that the audience for this blog is a lot larger than the couple of dozen people who post on a regular basis, something that would be good for all of us to keep in mind.
As for the conference itself, the speakers were great and for a first event of this size, put together so quickly, it was very well organized. I’m not sure BC High School was such a great venue. For one thing we had to park next door at UMass/Boston, which wasn’t so bad Saturday when the weather was great, but would have been terrible if the weather had been bad, which it can be so often this year. Plus the hallways, especially where the various exhibitors were set up, were very cramped. Obviously, when they chose BC High they didn’t anticipate such a large crowd.
