Calling Men of St. John’s

What do you want of me today, Lord?   I asked that question when I began this column.  The answer was clear.  Invite men of St. John’s Parish and beyond to join me in battle.

The battle began before we were born, and will continue until Christ comes again.  It is a battle for survival of souls. Men are called to bring their wives and children home to God.  Currently, many families are leaving the church.  Consequently, the church is in crisis now.  The pandemic has made this situation worse, but there is something men can do about it.  You may feel unqualified to join the battle.  However, step into the breach with me.

Men Need a Battle Plan

Inspired by the Apostolic Exhortation for Catholic men written by Bishop Olmsted of Phoenix, the Knights of Columbus produced a video series which seeks to answer the question of what it means to be a man and how to live as a man in today’s world.  By joining together in brotherhood, men receive the support they need to grow in virtue and to take action to serve Christ and others.   Therefore, That Man is You (TMIY) and the Knights of Columbus (KofC) council of our parish has joined forces to provide all men with a battle plan.

TMIY and KofC Working Together

TMIY normally holds fall and spring sessions, with no sessions during the summer.   The core team decided to continue the weekly rosary throughout the summer.  The link to the Zoom meeting has been shared in Sunday bulletins.

Additionally, they agreed to team up with us to host this special program for the men of our parish.  Special thanks go to Adam Kanyuh, and the other members of the TMIY Core Team, for accepting the invitation to help facilitate this program.

This co-hosted video series will utilize the same Zoom meeting link.  Virtual meetings allow us to offer the program to all men without concern for current social distancing regulations.

Will You Answer the Call

Starting Saturday June 5th, join us for a twelve week video series entitled “Into the Breach”.   Join at either 7:00 AM to pray the rosary with us or at 7:30 AM for the video series only.  We will watch the video together and break into small discussion groups.  A moderator will summarize the week’s topic and conclude in prayer by 8:30 AM.

If you decide to join us, the Zoom Meeting ID is 966 728 9832 and the Passcode is TMIY20.

There is no commitment to attend every week, just come when you can. We are sure you will find this a worthwhile endeavor.

Take the Next Step

Watch the video trailer on our website to learn more about the program.  Sign up for weekly email reminders.  Emails will provide a link to the video and study materials, produced by the Knights of Columbus.

In conclusion, these twelve weeks can prepare you for battle.  Your family will thank you for spending this time in brotherhood.
