MIAMI CATHOLIC MEN

“People should come for two main reasons. They will leave better equipped to be the man God called them to be, and they will be better equipped for their family life.”

In 2013, the Brothers in Christ from St. Edward Catholic Church, located in Pembroke Pines, FL of the Archdiocese of Miami held its first ManUp Conference. Men from Florida and other states as well had the opportunity to attend this annual event.


Each year this conference presented a different experience to those attending, creating an environment for men to encounter the Lord while allowing a most powerful personal experience. Following the pandemic and beginning in 2022, the ManUP Conference has expanded to include over 100 parishes from the three South Florida counties encompassing the Archdiocese of Miami.


The conference, which now invites men to attend with their sons and grandsons, sons-in-law and nephews, provides a ministry for men at a time when the need for men to grow as “priest, prophet and king” as anointed through baptism has never been greater.

“Countless men have returned to the sacraments, many after being away for decades and have re-assumed their role as the spiritual heads of their households.”
