For more than a decade CMFP has striven to deliver content and speakers to assist the men of the Diocese of Phoenix in growing in their faith, discerning their vocation and leading their family.

For 2023 we have:

Tim Gray

Tim Gray is President of the Augustine Institute and well known Catholic speaker and author. He received an MA from Franciscan University of Steubenville, ThM from Duke University, and PhD in Biblical Studies from Catholic University of America. Under Dr. Gray’s leadership, the Augustine Institute has created popular programs including Symbolon, a comprehensive program of faith formation for adults, FORMED, a digital platform with Catholic film, ebooks, and audio talks, and Signs of Grace, a sacramental preparation program for children. He is the author of several books including Peter: Keys to Following Jesus and Praying Scripture for a Change: An Introduction to Lectio Divina.

George Weigel

Distinguished Senior Fellow and William E. Simon Chair in Catholic Studies

Mr. Weigel is perhaps best known for his widely translated and internationally acclaimed two-volume biography of Pope St. John Paul II: the New York Times bestseller, Witness to Hope (1999), and its sequel, The End and the Beginning (2010). In 2017, Weigel published a memoir of the experiences that led to his work as a papal biographer: Lessons in Hope — My Unexpected Life with St. John Paul II.

Fr. Larry Richards

Father can be heard on the EWTN internet radio show called “The Reason For Our Hope” on Mondays and Fridays at 1:00 p.m. (EST), and the EWTN radio show called “Father Knows Best” on Mondays and Fridays at 4:00 a.m. (EST), and was a previous favorite on the live EWTN radio show called “Open Line” on Thursdays.

Father Larry can be seen on the EWTN televised programs “Living Right with Dr. Ray” and “Crossing the Goal”.  EWTN broadcasted a mini-series entitled “Be A Man” in 2014 in five episodes to inspire men to become the true heroes they long to be – men of courage, compassion and integrity.
