January Meeting Summary, etc.

The Catholic Men’s night for January was a great success.  48 men joined us for our evening, uniting themselves to the Sacrifice of Christ in Holy Mass, enjoying a hearty meal from our most excellent caterer, and being challenged to become more intense and focused in our prayer life.  Many thanks to Fr. Lavigne for teaching us about the Divine Mercy devotion and challenging us all to “step up”.  Also, a big thank you to St. John the Evangelist Parish and Fr. Kenyon for being so willing to accommodate us at short notice.  The Guild is blessed to have found a new home for the supper and talks.

Our February Men’s Night is coming soon, with Dr. Thomas Bouchard offering the talk on an important topic of today: Current Issues of Conscience and Medicine – Euthanasia, etc.  Further details about the date of this month’s event will appear on this site very soon, as well as in the usual email.

* Important Reminder – Once More Men, Into the Breach for Catholic Education

Again, we ask all men involved with the Guild to please contact our holy and persecuted Bishop, His Excellency Fred Henry in support of his defense of Catholic Education.  Also, if you have the time, please send a letter/email/message to your local MLA as well as the Premier and Education Minister.  Too long have Catholic men in Alberta been quiet regarding moral and social issues of great importance.  Attached HERE is an open letter to the Premier with some questions and commentary from a Guild Member that you may find helpful in composing your own letter.
