March 19, 2005 (The Feast of St. Joseph) was a tremendous day in the Archdiocese of Boston. The weather was sunny and crisp, despite forecasts of rain earlier in the week. Boston College High School turned out to be a tremendous place to hold the Conference, with the spacious McNeice Pavilion to host the Conference and the beautiful new foyer for the registration and exhibitor tables.
Over 2,200 attended the event! This far exceeded initial hopes for 500 men!
99.5% of men responding to our survey said they'd be back in 2006 - bringing friends!
Over 1,000 men experienced the Sacrament of Reconcilation - some for the first time in decades!
Over 80 priests turned out to hear Confessions and experience the day! Thank you to our priests!
Our speakers, Jim Towey, Fr. Larry Richards, Tom Monaghan, Fr. Philip Merdinger, Jo Tango, Brother Patrick Reilly, Antonio Enrique and, of course, Jim Caviezel well all very enthusiastically received.
We closed the day with the celebration of Mass led by Archbishop Sean O'Malley.
