OUR VISION: Holiness through Virtue
OUR MISSION: To promote and support virtue-building programs that serve Catholic men’s call to live in the fullness of grace, guided by the Holy Spirit, through the leadership of our Bishop.
Under the patronage of St. Joseph, we seek to support, strengthen and embolden the spiritual growth of Catholic men through prayer, formation, fellowship, and evangelization. Through programs and events, we seek to help men grow in holiness and to live their faith in their marriages, families, workplaces, communities, and parishes. We seek to work with existing ministries and organizations in the diocese to combine efforts and resources so as to better serve Catholic men. We aspire to hold regular fellowship and formation events, develop a men’s retreat league, a formation-coaching series aimed at business executives, and an annual men’s conference in the diocese.
He saved us and called us to a holy life 2 Timothy 1:9
