The Annual Catholic Men's Conference 

A Great Gathering of Men was held on Saturday February 24, 2018

This year's theme: What does it take to be a Catholic Man?


Peter Herbeck
Vice President and director of missions for Renewal Ministries, Peter has been actively involved in evangelization and Catholic renewal throughout the US, Canada, Africa, Eastern Europe and now Asia for more than 30 years. Peter oversees the work of lay mission teams who work to equip Catholic lay people, bishops, priests and religious to respond to the call of the new evangelization. He is co-host for the weekly EWTN television programs The Choices We Face and Crossing the Goal ~ the popular weekly show for men. He also hosts the daily radio show Fire on the Earth. He is a frequent conference speaker, has authored "When the Spirit Speaks" and has produced CDs and booklets about discipleship and life in the Spirit. Peter and his wife, Debbie, also a conference speaker, have four children and live in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Eric Mahl
From a merciless linebacker, Eric has been transformed to messenger of divine mercy. Eric, a standout high school athlete, played Division One football at Kent State and, in 2005, was signed by the Cleveland Browns and later the New York Jets. While Eric grew up in a devout Catholic home and attended Catholic schools, it took a long time for him to understand what is beneath the surface of what we do as Catholics. After leaving the NFL, he spent 3 years living with Carmelite hermits in Texas, where he continued his intensive focus discerning his vocation. After that period of discernment, he fully gave himself to the Lord and decided to live out the message of Divine Mercy. Ericís journey eventually led him to Fr. Michael Gaitley and the National Shrine of Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Eric now lives, works and prays in service with the Marian Missionaries of Divine Mercy and continues his ministry to the homeless.

Greg Wasinski
Greg Wasinski is an international, full-time, Catholic Christian Inspirational Speaker and Author from Cleveland, OH. He also offers his radio talents as a daily contributor to SiriusXM Radioís, The Catholic Channel with his "Faith & Real Life Moments."

Greg is one of the freshest and most compelling voices in the church helping others find faith in the real world while once again understanding the beauty of why they believe what they believe. He draws from real life experiences, scriptural reflection and specific ďGod instancesĒ to creatively illustrate how God is at work in us, at all times.

As a lifelong Catholic, there were aspects of the faith Greg took for granted and those he never fully understood. He now uses those examples to help others form a deeper relationship with God and make that the foundation for who they are as leaders in their homes, workplaces, and parishes.

Shortly after a life changing silent retreat, Greg transferred his career talents as a business executive and answered a call in to ministry as a presenter, offering his message to help others bring faith and real life together. Currently, he is the author of four books, including: "Where Faith and Real Life Come Together" and "Unconditionally: Finding Jesus in the Eucharist."

Greg is married 23 years and has two teenage children. He holds a Certificate in Scriptural Catholic Theology from John Paul the Great University in Escondido, CA.
