That Man is You
Here are some images taken from (the four) Small Group Zoom meetings of our men's program,
That Man Is You
(TMIY). TMIY has been meeting each Friday morning through the summer and they are just finishing up a study of the book of Revelation. They will have a few more meetings in late July and early August with a variety of short discussion topics, and then the formal TMIY program will start up again in September.
You are encouraged to join us to strengthen your faith and enjoy fellowship with other Catholic men. All adult men are welcome! email

All life is sacred.
As Catholics, we are called to defend the dignity of life. We understand that all life is sacred, important and worthy of our defense from conception until natural death. We also recognize that we are called to give the highest priority to the helpless, most vulnerable. That is true, even when it is rejected by society. Even when it makes us uncomfortable. Even when it's not politically correct! Even when we have not always been obedient ourselves. Even when it conflicts with previously held viewpoints.
