That Man Is You!

THAT MAN IS YOU!

THE BATTLE OVER THE BRIDE

The St. Mark Men’s Group hasn’t let the pandemic slow us down!

That Man is You! resumes Saturday mornings
January 23rd – April 24th at 8:15 am on Zoom.

That Man is You! honestly addresses the pressures and temptations that men face in our modern culture, especially those relating to their roles as husbands and fathers.

The program harmonizes current social and medical science with the teachings of the Church and the wisdom of the saints to develop the vision of man fully alive!  Visit www.tmiy.org for more information.

Until we return to our breakfast meeting format, men watch a 30-minute video during the week, then meet to discuss via Zoom on Saturdays

Contact ian.kangaloo@gmail.com with your questions and to receive the weekly email with the Zoom link and access to the videos.

That Man is You! is offering a FREE virtual Lenten Retreat to kick off Lent where you can experience for yourself the unique spirituality of TMIY.

Sign up for the retreat at:

Men’s Group

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, all
meetings are cancelled until further notice.

FRIDAY MORNINGS AT 6:00 A.M.

Gather with other Christian men who want to grow their faith.
Although the focus of the discussion is usually a book – chosen from Sacred Scripture or a Spiritual Classic – the priority is prayer and building relationships as we grow closer to Christ.
If you are interested or have any questions please contact Bruce Cutting at 519-745-7490 or bruce@goldroast.ca or simply drop by the church at 6 am Friday mornings … we would love to have you join us!

March 17, 2020

Good morning,

In this extra ordinary time in our diocese, province, country and the world, it is prudent to stop to reflect and adjust our plans as needed.

Many councils have already decided to postpone their activities.  The Diocese of Hamilton updated the list of closures and suspension of activities at the diocesan offices and in parishes yesterday.  Now that a state of emergency has been declared in Ontario, any public events for more that 50 people are formally prohibited until March 31, 2020.

With an abundance of caution the following Catholic Women’s League activities have been postponed:

  • Kitchener Region Meeting – March 21, 2020
  • North Region Meeting – March 28, 2020
  • 100th Anniversary Dinner & Dance – April 18, 2020
  • 100th Anniversary Candlelight Memorial Prayer Service – April 26, 2020

These events have not been cancelled but have been postponed until circumstances allow them to be held safely.  Information that was to be presented at the Kitchener and north region meetings and that which was presented at the Hamilton meeting will be posted on the website, www.cwlhamilton.ca shortly.

No decision has yet been made regarding the open executive meeting scheduled to take place in Hamilton on April 20, 2020 or the convention scheduled for May 29 – 31, 2020.  If that changes you will be informed through the regional chairs and through the website.

I have said it many times before but it is good to reiterate that we continue to “travel this road together, for God and Canada.”  It certainly is a bumpy road!

Blessings today and always.

Catherine

Diocesan Catholic Women’s League
