That Man is You
All men are welcome to join with the "That Man Is You" (TMIY) men of St. Benedict for breakfast, fellowship, different Catholic Speakers each week and faith discussions each Saturday morning at 7:30AM In the St. Benedict School Basement.

We will discuss the Church’s vision of men living the three-fold mission of abiding presence, joyful service and loving sacrifice, so their hearts and homes will experience the joy that God desires. There is no cost to attend. Learn more and register at tmiy.org.
"Catechism in a Year" Listening Group
We are excited to invite all women of the parish to join us in reading the entire Catechism of the Catholic Church together using “The Catechism in a Year” podcast with Fr. Mike Schmitz. Following this podcast, our aim is to read the entire Catechism in 365 days, understand the essentials of the Catholic Faith and why they matter, and transform our relationship with the Church that Christ founded. We will meet to discuss the podcast on the last Sunday of each month at 7:30pm in the parish library. For more information, please contact Kathy Gwinn at email@example.com.
