Catholic Watchmen

Introducing a new Archdiocesan Men's Movement, Catholic Watchmen!

“The Catholic Watchmen initiative offers the bishops a chance to invite Catholic men to join together and fully live their calling to holiness, encouraging them to take a stand in our culture in favor of Gospel values.” -Bishop Cozzens

Catholic Watchmen's mission is to support the men of our parish in growing together in faith and fellowship. We eat, drink, learn, and pray together on a monthly basis. No experience or reservation necessary - just show up at an event when you're able and feel free to bring along a buddy/son/father. There is no organization to join. By attending, you're committing only to enjoy the company of other men of the parish as we work together to grow, individually and as a community, along the continuum of holiness.

St. Charles' Catholic Watchmen Nights are held on the 3rd Thursdays of each month from September to April. Each event includes an opportunity for Eucharistic adoration and confession, manly meal and beverages (including a good selection of craft and domestic brews), and a short presentation and group discussion, all for a suggested donation of $10.

Typical Agenda:
6:30 Fellowship, Snacks/Beverages
7:00 Meal, Video Presentation, Group Discussion
8:15 Announcements/Break
8:30 Adoration/Benediction, Confessions Available
9:00 (sharp!) Adjourn
