The board of Suncoast Catholic Ministries had a vision to draw men to Christ and grow in their faith. For 11 years they held in person conferences for men in Tampa, Fl.


New this year, Suncoast is proud to announce a hybrid conference experience that allows 250 men in person and thousands of men from around the world to participate live digitally. 


The digital conference includes:

Live stream of the teachings, prayer and Mass




Keynote speakers will be in person and due to Covid travel restrictions, be sharing their talks live on Zoom

All live and video presentations will be recorded and available for up to 60 days for all attendees

    This year's Conference offers an in-person option with limited seating held at Higgins Hall on the campus of St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Tampa.  Please join us for food, fellowship, Mass, confession and exciting messages from some of the most popular Catholic speakers today.
