Catholic Watchmen Nights

All The Men of Epiphany

Catholic-Watchmen-logoThe mission of the Catholic Watchmen is to respond to Bishop Cozzen’s call to Catholic men to live up to their duty to be protectors, providers and leaders of their families. To accomplish this task, Catholic Watchmen learn and practice 7 Disciplines.

Each Catholic Watchmen Night runs from 6:30-9:00 p.m. with a video presentation, adoration and confession. Followed by group discussion with snacks and beverages.

Catholic Gentlemen, Be a Man Be a Saint

More than ever, the Church needs men. Sadly, many Catholic men have believed the lie that being holy isn’t manly, and that the faith is boring. They leave religion to women and children and simply tune out. But holiness is for men. There is nothing more difficult, rewarding, or manly than becoming a saint. The spiritual life is full of combat, struggle, hardship, and adventure. It requires blood, sweat, tears, perseverance, and courage. It isn’t for the faint of heart. Catholic men are called to leave mediocrity behind and to strive for greatness. The Catholic Gentleman exists to inspire men to holiness—to love God, to serve others, and to deny self. And to do it all with class and classic manly flair.
