The Conquest Holy Rosary group in Milton, Ontario had an incredible event in October. They organized a fall “Conquest Dad and Son Night” with 30 dads and 35 boys in attendance. Marvin Duarte, the Conquest leader said “This was the first major event for our group and was primarily intended as an opportunity for new and old members and dads to meet, bond, have fun and to learn what the Conquest program is all about.”
The event was help at one of the dad’s 4 acre home and property in the countryside near Milton, Ontario. Duarte also said “The event was a huge success due to a strong commitment from the host, Michael Hoffbauer. A lot of detailed planning and hard work went into organizing the event, as well as promotion to ensure to get the dads there.” Activities at the event included soccer, basketball, archery, shooting, and a campfire with music accompaniment. A BBQ for dinner and hot chocolate was available for all. Fr. Thomas Murphy, LC provided a talk to the dads about participating in the weekly activities and opportunities presented by Conquest for their sons.
