Catholic Men of SW Suburban Chicago to meet at Our Lady of the Woods, Orland Park, IL, May 13

Last Thursday, many Catholic Men of SW Suburban Chicago met at Our Lady of the Woods to pray the rosary, celebrate Mass and hear Fr. Thomas Loya speak about authentic manhood. Pizza and refreshments were served.

According to Fr. Loya, we men need three things:

1.       An adventure to live,

2.       A battle to fight, and

3.       A woman to rescue, to live for and to die for.

If you missed this event, you missed a lot.

You can listen to Fr. Loya’s talks here

Mark your calendars for Thursday, May 13.  We will meet at 6:30 p.m.
