History On The Cincinnati Men’s Conference:
Started in 1994, The Cincinnati Catholic Men’s Conference was the first Catholic Men’s conference ever organized in the United States. Hundreds of other Catholic Men’s conferences have since spawned from it and have modeled after what Cincinnati pioneered. 2011 was the last year the Cincinnati Catholic Men’s conference occurred before making a strong comeback on April 28, 2018. The conference was held at the beautiful Taft Theatre in downtown Cincinnati where over 1,300 men gathered in attendance. The tradition continues to grow stronger and will reoccur on June 15th, 2019.
