New for 2021 & Beyond

Sign up for your regional event below to progress in your own faith and learn how to encounter men in your local community, inviting them into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Esto Vir is answering Bishop Ricken’s call to raise up missionary disciples. Esto Vir is uniquely positioned among the laity of our Diocese to call men into action and the time is now! In light of everything going on, we are not able to host the traditional, largely attended spring conference that you are used to seeing every year from Esto Vir. Instead, we are going to have regional events across the Diocese of Green Bay. Although physically we are not together for our normal annual conference, these micro two hour events allow us to still meet in person, have mass, obtain guest speakers, build in fraternity with one another and grow closer in our personal relationship to Jesus.

Esto Vir’s mission is to engage, cultivate and challenge men to become Catholic servant leaders of their families & communities.

These regional events are meant for every man to attend. There is no preparation for them and they are meant to be organic to create dialogue with one another. You will reconnect with one another to build friendships and spread the hope and joy of the gospel. Sign up to attend the regional event that is convenient for you below!

We will be holding a leadership conference to encourage men to pursue truth and meaning in their lives, to invest in relationships with Jesus Christ and their fellow men in their parishes and communities. This year’s Esto Vir Leadership Conference will be on March 20 at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help. Dr. Edward Sri will be live, in-person to explain how to challenge men through Bible studies, outreach events, and one-on-one discipleship, missionaries inspire and build up students in the faith, sending them out to spread the good news and to know, love and serve God. Limited spots are available at this year’s Esto Vir Leadership conference, so you will be able to learn more and sign up at your regional event. Please contact us with any questions you may have! 

Our Mission - Our Vision - Our Values

ESTO VIR aims to help encourage, embolden, and empower intentional discipleship among men, to deepen their commitment to Jesus Christ, their families, the Catholic Church, its bishops, priests, and their communities.

By our Baptism we were made brothers in Christ. We were also called to demonstrate our faith in the everyday activities of our life; with our family, at work, in recreation and in prayer.

ESTO VIR has been formed to develop resources and activities to support Catholic men through men’s conferences, educational and fellowship activities, opportunities for common prayer and parish-based men’s groups.

By these means we seek to encourage, embolden and empower men to deepen their commitment to Jesus Christ and His Church, to their families, and to the communities in which they live.

Esto Vir is a 501-c (3) organization that aims to encourage, embolden, and empower intentional discipleship among men, to deepen their commitment to Jesus Christ, their families, the Catholic Church, its clergy and communities.
