The men of St. Louis parish meet on Fridays in the fall and spring at St. Louis Catholic Church to discuss issues that are important to all Catholic men.
Men have been gathering for years at St. Louis Catholic Church on Friday mornings, beginning with the That Man Is You! leadership program from Paradisus Dei. This excellent video series laid the foundation for a faith development and fellowship among more than 250 men in the parish.
The group aims to deepen their relationships with Jesus Christ, their families and their community to help them live their faith in everyday life. Doors open at 5:30 AM. Meetings begin and end promptly on Fridays, 6:00 AM to 7:30 AM. All men of faith are invited!
St. Louis IX, the only canonized king of France. He is a model Christian man, renowned for his moral justice, his love of Jesus Christ, and his courageous defense of our faith.
Although he lived nearly 800 years ago, St. Louis is still venerated today with many cities, cathedrals, churches and missions throughout the world named in honor of this great king.

“The most important media project in the history
of the Catholic Church in America"
George Weigel, Biographer of St. John Paul II
The group meets Friday mornings from 6:00 to 7:30 a.m. in Wozniak Hall. The weekly agenda is:
6:00 a.m. – Breakfast
6:15 a.m. – Opening prayer & presentation
7:30 a.m. – Closing prayer & adjourn
I have never attended any meetings, can I join now?
Absolutely. This program is designed so that men can join at anytime and get going quickly.
I can’t make every meeting.
Most participants have to miss some meetings. We all lead busy lives; this unique ministry sets time apart for men to study their faith, meet other parish families and grow into a deeper relationship with Jesus.
Do I need to study anything in advance?
No. While this program does compel a desire within men to deepen their knowledge about their faith, it doesn’t require advance study prep.
The King’s Men helps the Catholic faith come alive for men in ways that would have been impossible given a more narrow focus. The weekly prayer breakfast offers the perfect opportunity for fellowship with Fr. James Misko and the men of St. Louis. To register, subscribe to the King's Men list at www.flocknote.com/st-louis.
