"They were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other Apostles,
Brothers - what then must we do?" Acts 2:37
Launching nationally online from Saturday 31 July 2021
As an initiative of the Australian Catholic Bishops, the National Catholic Men’s Gathering aims to inspire and encourage all 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
The National Catholic Men’s Gathering for 2020 was a successful online event where approximately 1000 men gathered across the nation at 42 hosting sites. Access to the videos and resources from the 2020 event are included on this page. Some comments from the 2020 participants:
“The content was solid and the presentations were great. It was a blessing that it became available online and that is was self-paced as I needed some time between each one to process it”.
“Very helpful and presenters covered current issues clearly and statistically challenged our need to be involved”.
“Informative, inspiring and entertaining during which I felt the presence of the Holy Spirit and blessed”.
In this Year of St Joseph, the National Catholic Men’s Gathering is again being offered as a free event for registered participants. All dioceses across Australia are invited to participate in the 2021 program which will focus on St Joseph and will include a pre-recorded introductory session, three pre-recorded sessions, and a final commissioning, all available from Saturday 31 July 2021.

The 2021 program offers flexibility so that you may participate individually or gather with others from your parish/diocese or men’s ministry group. The sessions are designed so that they can be used on one full day or across a number of days and they can be integrated with local initiatives such as Mass, testimonies and group discussions.
Individual registration will ensure you receive updates about the program and all links to the pre-recorded videos when they are available.
Registration is available below. When registering, please note the need to agree to the terms and conditions, which can be found here.
