About the Boston Catholic Men's Conference: Established the fall of 2004, during a small Catholic Men's Group meeting at Saint Paul Parish in Cambridge MA, one of the participants asked "How can this group help Archbishop Sean rebuild the Church in Boston?" Now, in it's sixth year the conference has heeded the call from the Archbishop at his Installation Mass for all Catholics in the Archdiocese to join him in helping to move the Church of Boston forward.
