Whether you have tried TMIY before or have never joined us, this year’s programming is brand new. Every Saturday morning, over 26 weeks, we will feature 9 different speakers on the topic: “The Vision of Man Fully Alive” which enables men to experience authentic freedom as sons of God, and will sustain us on our spiritual journey by leading us directly to the three spiritual foods: The Eucharist, The Word of God, and The Will of God.  Men can come as often as their schedules allow. Video preview:

There is no previous attendance required to participate! 
The program consists of breakfast, video and table discussion. Designed for dads to be back home before kid’s activities begin. Make a spiritual investment in yourself to become a better husband, father & friend and it’s ok to bring a friend, high-school age son or neighbor.

We will NOT meet on November 3 or 24, 2018, or March 2 or 9, 2019. The last session is April 13, 2019.

TMIY Testimonials… What does TMIY mean to you?

TMIY is challenging me to become a better human being: to honor my commitments, to live a more balanced life, and to contribute in making life better for others. In gathering with other Catholic men, I’ve found that there’s joy in the journey! I enjoy the camaraderie & insights shared with other guys in the group, who’ve become good friends. Through the TMIY program, I’ve also become more convicted about taking advantage of the sacraments regularly, avoiding temptation & improving my spiritual life.    ~ Brian Knott

I never thought I would look forward to rising at 5:30 am on a Saturday after a week of work, but my experience with my table brothers over the last year at TMIY, bringing myself closer to what being a Catholic male is really all about, was what got me out of bed and over to Crane Road. Each Saturday morning was so enriching to me, it was a great way to finish my week.    ~ Peter Smith

My family and I have been attending St. Pat’s Parish for 3 years now and have enjoyed growing with the church. I felt a calling to join TMIY after hearing about it at mass one Sunday (actually my wife was telling me I felt the calling, lol) and I am so glad I did. It really has been so refreshing to see so many Men that like to hear the word and to really share their life stories weekly. Being on the younger side of the group (34, when I joined last fall) I enjoy listening, watching and participating in the group discussions on all levels. It is nice to get home early on Sat. morning with donuts for the kids and tell them that I too go to religious ed like they do and it gives us an opening to discuss God and what makes him and us so great. I feel truly blessed for the group of men I have met and I know it has made me a better husband, dad, and man.
When you come, I know you will feel the same.       ~ Jeff Theisen

A number of years ago, I begin my journey back to my Catholic faith. There has been nothing more fulfilling in my life than my Catholic faith. When our parish started the TMIY program I was assigned to one of the tables as a small group facilitator. It is been a great two years in that role. The thing that has be so interesting is how every guy who has been at our table is on a completely different point in their journey in their Catholic faith. We have a good mixture of both cradle Catholics and converts at our table. To a man the material is personally challenging, yet it touches each one differently because we are all looking at it through a different prism. The material challenges us all to be better husbands, better fathers and better witnesses to Jesus Christ and to live our lives more abundantly.    ~ Jeff Galush
