Society of St. Joseph

September 15 | 6:00 a.m. | Mcloughlin Center | Contact Bryan Kynkor bkynkor@gmail.com

Join 100+ men for fellowship as we engage in course material and discussion, deepen our faith and strengthen our roles as leaders in our families, at the workplace, and in the parish community, modeling ourselves after the great St. Joseph.

The Society of St. Joseph is pleased to present: “ Into The Breach”. In the past two decades, more that 14 million Catholics have left the faith. In the face of these losses, Catholic men are called to put aside any hesitation to live a life of mission. We must enter into the breach. To step into the breach requires every man to have faith and take action. The Into the Breach series challenges men to seek greatness and to be heroically virtuous, to have a character marked by goodness and truth, strength and courage. “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17). Through shared experience and small group discussion, men build a brotherhood through Into the Breach, strengthening them in their mission as disciples.
