ST HELEN CATHOLIC MEN STANDING FOR JESUS CHRIST
WEDNESDAY EVENINGS, beginning September 9th from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Church
“And I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land…”(Ezekiel 22:30)
On August 5th Archbishop Byrnes encouraged the men to know their identity as men of God. In 2015, Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted issued a challenge to the men of his diocese—to step into the breach. His exhortation, Into the Breach: An Apostolic Exhortation to Catholic Men, identifies the crisis of faith facing the Church today and presents a vision of the role of Catholic men in combatting it. Inspired by Bishop Olmsted’s vision, the Knights of Columbus and the Diocese of Phoenix have joined together to produce a 12-episode video series, also titled Into the Breach. each episode focuses on a diﬀerent aspect of authentic Catholic masculinity and features interviews with well-known Catholic commentators and follows the personal story of a man whose life illuminates each theme.
All men welcome as we view two sessions each Wednesday, share in discussion on the topics and close the evening in praying the Rosary.
