From the Youtube post:
Catholic Brothers For Christ 2015 North Texas Catholic Men’s Conference at the Hurst Conference Center was amazing. Many men experienced a spiritual transformation and revival of their faith and hope.
We were edified, encouraged and inspired by our great speakers: Bishop Michael Olson, Father Larry Richards and Tom Peterson. The fellowship was awesome. We all now have a new Band Of Brothers who will help us walk the difficult path of life with a greater experience of faith, hope and love.
Father Larry Richards speech was titled “Spiritual exercises to prepare us for battle!” Growing in holiness is the key to being an effective spiritual warrior.
He did not disappoint. We were on fire after his presentation and examination of conscience before the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Father Richards truly is a gifted and captivating speaker, preacher and retreat master. He asked us and answered some of life’s most profound questions.
Tom Peterson’s speech was titled “Our World Needs Catholic Heroes!” We discovered we too can be Catholic Heroes to ourselves, families, friends and communities.
Mr. Peterson has over 25 years of experience as an award-winning and record-setting national corporate advertising executive and entrepreneur. His prior marketing, advertising, and management experience includes: American Hospital Supply Corporation; Thomas Publishing Co., IDX Systems Corporation, Phoenix Medical Management, Peterson Sparks, Inc., and Peterson Advertising Corporation.
Bishop Michael Olson encouraged us all to walk with our Savior on a daily basis. Love is the cure the world is seeking. Jesus died on the cross as the supreme example of sacrificial love. He wants us to take up our cross and follow Him to eternal life in heaven.
In 1985, his family moved to Fort Worth as part of the corporate relocation of GTE/DC. In 1988, Bishop Olson officially transferred as a seminarian to the Diocese of Fort Worth. He was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Fort Worth on June 3, 1994, and began his priestly ministry as the parochial vicar of St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Bedford, Texas, from July 1994 through June, 1997.
On January 29, 2014 Bishop Olson was ordained bishop and installed as the fourth bishop of the Diocese of Fort Worth at the Fort Worth Convention Center. Approximately 8,500 Catholics from across North Texas and beyond were in attendance.
Our mission is: “To motivate all Catholic men to commit to building the body of Christ, by uniting as brothers, witnessing the Gospel in all areas of our lives, and facilitating faith building programs in our community.”
We hope and pray you will become a part of our team by helping us spread the word about the conference in your parish and among your family and friends.
We realize it is only through the power of the Holy Spirit that we are able to do any of this. We hope and pray the Holy Spirit will also inspire you to become an integral part of the North Texas Catholic Brothers for Christ.
By uniting as Band Of Brothers, we can accomplish amazing feats, as we work together to build the Body of Christ. We want to encourage you to grow and experience the joy of living fully to become all you were meant to be by the Creator. “I have come so you may have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10
