which he talks about becoming the man God created you to be.
CMCS has a practical way of evangelizing Catholic men young and old, and their families, of helping them to understand what the culture often rejects – how men and women should relate to one another in complementary ways and how important husbands and fathers are to children.

Since 2004, CMCS has reminded men and helped them to do what is in their power to do: to a be holy and courageous man, to improve their marriages, to be better fathers, to grow in virtue, to serve the needs of others more generously, to be a better citizen.

Deacons: $15.00 each (plus 3 Hail Mary’s). Priests are Free (plus pray for conference at Masses).
