We are thrilled to offer this awesome series for our mutual growth in Faith, Fellowship and Formation. We believe that a Catholic education fueled by inspiration will help us to be better able to not only teach our families the faith but also defend our Church in our daily lives. Your Core team of servants, dedicated to making this the most fruitful year of Men’s Ministry ever, have secured awesome speakers who have dedicated their lives to igniting the holy fire of the Faith in the hearts of Men.

This series will be on the 3rd Monday of every month, in the Parish Hall at 7:30pm. Following each lecture will be a Question and Answer session with the speaker then we finish the night praying Night Prayer in our Divine Mercy Chapel during Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. Our prayer is that you join us so that together as a band of brothers in Christ, we may “put away the old man of our former way of life, corrupted through deceitful desires, and be renewed in the spirit of our minds, and put on the new man, created in God's way in righteousness and holiness of truth.” Ephesians 4:22-24
