What does it mean to be a man in our current culture? Society has made an attack on authentic masculinity and it can be confusing to figure out how to live this out in our daily lives. Fr. Kovash is inviting the men of the parish to take part in a men’s group that will directly focus on what it means to be a man.
“Into the Breach is a video series that was put together by the Knights of Columbus,” he says. “It is really a challenge for Catholic men to look at what it means to be a man in our current culture. Fatherhood, traditional marriage, and authentic masculinity are being attacked. So, in some ways, we are calling men to battle and to embrace the masculine virtues so we can be the kind of men God wants us to be.”
The group will be meeting for 12 weeks starting on Saturday, Oct. 7. Fellowship and a light breakfast of donuts, muffins, fruit, coffee, and juice will begin at 7:30 a.m. with the video beginning at 8 a.m. The videos last between 10-12 minutes and a discussion will follow, wrapping up around 9 a.m.
This series is directed towards men who are 18 and older. The 12 topics to be covered during this series include authentic masculinity, brotherhood, leadership, fatherhood, defenders of life, embracing suffering, prayer, the sacramental life, spiritual warfare, evangelization, the meaning of life, and our relationship with God.
“I think the men of our parish are really ready for this series,” Fr. Kovash says. “It has been a while since we have had a men’s group here and this is a great opportunity for us to come together and grow. God is trying to raise up saints and heroes. He is looking for strong men who are after the Heart of Jesus.”
More information on the series can be found on the Knights of Columbus website. The videos can also be watched on the website for those who are unable to attend the meetings.
“For a lot of men, it can be hard to take the time to dive into things like this,” Fr. Kovash says. “Especially for those who are husbands and fathers, between being the provider, working, kids, activities, and sports, it can be tough. So we are really encouraging men to take advantage of this opportunity and entrust this group to the Holy Spirit and see what He does with us.”
Please join us in the parish hall Saturday mornings starting on Oct. 7.
