2023 Men’s Conference – Interior Peace: Leading The Family In Anxious Times

About the Conference

This conference aims to help men seeking true and lasting peace – first within themselves, and then within their married and family lives. The conference will consist of talks, guided reflections and group discussions about cultivating inner peace in one’s own spiritual life, sharing that peace with others, and dealing with internal and external threats to peace at home.

Speakers include:

Peter Kreeft, Ph.D, professor of philosophy at Boston College and author of over 100 books, including Handbook of Christian Apologetics, Christianity for Modern Pagans, and Fundamentals of the Faith.

R.J. Snell, Ph.D, editor-in-chief of Public Discourse and Director of Academic Programs at the Witherspoon Institute. Previously, he was for many years Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Philosophy Program at Eastern University and the Templeton Honors College, where he founded and directed the Agora Institute for Civic Virtue and the Common Good. He is the author of several books, including Acedia and its Discontents.

Other speakers will be announced later this summer.


The conference will consist of talks, group discussions, and informal get-togethers. Mass will be said Saturday and Sunday by a priest of Opus Dei, with time available throughout the weekend for confession and quiet prayer in the chapel.

An agenda will be sent out to participants a few weeks prior to the Conference.


Arnold Hall Conference Center, One Randall Street, Pembroke MA 02359.
