"They were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other Apostles,
 Brothers - what then must we do?" Acts 2:37 

The ACBC National Catholic Men’s Gathering for 2020 is being offered as a free event for registered participants. This modified program will be delivered in four pre-recorded sessions of approximately 1 hour in length, available from Saturday 15th August 2020.

Registration will be free and will be available from Monday 29th June.

Each session will offer input from a variety of speakers and musicians, along with a response and questions for group discussion (link to resource) or individual reflection. The program offers flexibility so that you may participate individually or gather with others from your parish/diocese or men’s ministry group.

As an initiative of the Australian Catholic Bishops, the aim of the ACBC National Men’s Gathering is to inspire and encourage men with a vision for personal discipleship, service and mission in the family, parish/diocese and the world. The online program hopes to reinforce that it is important to gather as men in the faith environment of the Church and be challenged to ensure the Gospel is alive in our homes, parishes/dioceses and our communities.
