New Meeting Format

We will be meeting on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month.

Our second Wednesday meetings will be for watching and discussing an episode of the 10-episode video series “Catholicism,” by Bishop Robert Barron. This series explores the cultural, spiritual, and historical elements of Catholicism.

Our fourth Wednesday meetings will feature a guest speaker, who will speak on topics of interest to Catholic men. We are pleased to announce that Steve Wood, the author of several wonderful books and the founder of Dads.org and Family Life Center International, will be coming to speak to the men of our parish at our first fourth-Wednesday meeting on February 26. He will be speaking on the topic of Christian masculinity. We’re honored to have Mr. Wood coming and we highly encourage the men of our parish (especially husbands and fathers) to attend.

All of our meetings will begin after the Wednesday 6:00pm Mass (about 6:45 pm), and will be held in Guadalupe Hall. We will announce guest speakers as they are scheduled.
