The 13th Annual Archdiocesan Catholic Men’s Conference will be held on Saturday March 6, 2021. The Man Up Philly volunteer team is finalizing our plans for the 2021 Conference and we have a fantastic line-up of speakers confirmed.
Given the current environment, our focus is working to find ways to safely bring us together. We are currently evaluating multiple options from smaller gatherings in local parishes to larger gatherings in local high schools, and if not feasible, an all virtual conference via a live webcast. Either way, we want to bring this great day to you to help all of us focus on our faith and reliance on Our Lord.
Now is the time to commit yourself to growing and enriching your Faith, along with inviting brothers, fathers, sons, and friends.

Our speaker lineup for 2021 is dynamic and focuses on service. We welcome for the first time Bishop Joe Coffey, auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Military Services, who was previously a priest of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and is in active chaplain service with the U.S. Navy.
We also welcome Col Tom Manion, who served in the Marine Corps for over 30 years. Colonel Manion founded the Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) to support our military, the families of the fallen and to help create the next generation of leaders after the loss of his son, 1st Lt. Travis Manion USMC, who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country in April 2007.
We welcome back acclaimed Irish tenor, Mark Forrest, who will again provide inspirational accompaniment during a special Eucharistic Adoration.
The Conference will conclude with Saturday Mass (not the Sunday Vigil) celebrated by Archbishop Nelson J. Perez.
On Saturday, March 6, 2021, men are invited to join Catholic men from throughout the Archdiocese for a day focused on fellowship and ways to live your faith everyday.
The Harrisburg Men’s Conference this year is a Virtual (livestreamed) Men’s Conference. It will be conducted on Saturday, March 20th from 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM. This year’s theme is Catholic Men: Defenders of the Faith.
WE HAVE A TERRIFIC LINEUP OF SPEAKERS! Really, it is like we have a bunch of keynote speakers. Some you know from our Diocese, others your know from seeing them on cable news or on EWTN (at least four of them). There are six talks, each 30 minutes long, plus Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament with Benediction, led by Bishop Gainer. The Men’s Conference theme is: Catholic Men: Defenders of the Faith.
