every life has a purpose



Watch a video from Father Patrick Beno on his thoughts about the way the saints can influence in our search for meaning in life.


Give yourself fully to God. 

He will use you to accomplish great things on the condition that you believe much more in His love than in your own weakness.

That Man is You! is an interactive men's program that combines the best research from science with the teachings of the Catholic faith. The goal of this program is to develop authentic male leadership by examining man's relationship to God, his spouse, and his children. 


We are in Year 2, entitled "A Light to the Nations," which considers man's relationship with his spouse. 


That Man is You! is held Wednesday mornings from 6:00-7:30 a.m. in church. Each session involves a light breakfast, DVD presentation, and small group discussion. All men are welcome and encouraged to attend! 


To register for this free program, please contact the Parish Office 920-494-2534.
