Into the Breach

Knights of Columbus Council 14129 invites all Catholic men of St. Mary’s parish to join us at our monthly Into the Breach video series and discussion via ZOOM. Our first ZOOM meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2020 at 7:00 pm. The video and discussion will last approximately 30 - 45 minutes.

Into the Breach is a 12-episode video series produced by the Knights of Columbus and found at www.kofc.org/en/campaigns/into-the-breach.html. This video series seeks to answer the question of what it means to be a man and how to live as a Catholic man in today’s world. Each episode focuses on a different aspect of authentic Catholic masculinity and features interviews with well-known Catholic commentators, as well as the personal story of a man who has deeply experienced the episode’s topic in his own life. Each episode runs approximately 12 minutes. The 12 episodes are titled: Masculinity, Brotherhood, Leadership, Fatherhood, Family, Life, Prayer, Suffering, Sacramental Life, Spiritual Warfare, Evangelization, and The Cornerstone.

The goal of Into the Breach is to help men grow in their faith and become the men that God is calling them to be. Much of our modern culture is beset by misunderstanding and contention about what it means to be a man. Many men receive mixed messages concerning who they are and what their role is. Into the Breach contends that men are made for greatness and the true expression of that greatness is to be heroically virtuous—and that Catholic masculinity means to have character marked by goodness and truth, strength and courage, in imitation of Christ.

Monthly Into the Breach ZOOM meetings will be held on the third or fourth Wednesday of every month at 7:00 pm. Meeting dates for the current fraternal year as follows: 9/23/2020, 10/28/2020, 11/18/2020, 12/16/2020, 1/27/2021, 2/24/2021, 3/24/2021, 4/28/2021, 5/26/2021, and 6/23/2021.
