Listed below are some photos from the recent CMF Leadership Day in Huntington Beach. It turned out that we had some 70 men’s group leaders there from 38 parishes. In addition we were joined by the regular chapter attendees of St. Vincent de Paul Church of about 30 men, for a total attendance of about 100+. Men came from as far away as El Centro, Hesperia, Palm Desert, Santa Clarita and Bakersfield.
It is our desire to hold a gathering such as for men’s group leaders on an annual basis.
We especially want to acknowledge and thank our primary speakers, Joel Freeman and David O’Connor, and our leader’s panel: Burt Martinez, Mike Kellogg, Donald Carpenter and Gus Corona. And we can not forget the fine breakfast cooked for us by Tony Gonzalez and the wonderful hospitality showed by the CMF chapter at St. Vincent’s led by Frank Serna. Thank all of you for making this day so successful. May this gathering bear much, much fruit for the Kingdom of God
