  • Following the model of “Dadvent,” join men from across the Diocese on Wednesday nights during Lent (Wed, Feb 17th – Wed, March 31st, 2021) at 8PM over Zoom for discussion around the video series “Into the Breach,” produced by the Knights of Columbus. Each night we will watch a video together and then have small group discussions.  We plan to be finished within an hour. Just like “Dadvent,” the overall goal is to strengthen our homes, families, and marriages by focusing on the example of St. Joseph.
    We want as many men to be involved as possible, so we’re inviting all men in all parishes and calling on parish men’s groups, Knights of Columbus Councils, and men’s small groups to join us for “Into the Breach” during Lent.

    Schedule:  
    Each Wednesday we will watch and discuss one film, which will cover seven films in the series. The other five videos will need to be watched individually sometime before the next meeting in order to complete the entire series during Lent.
    Feb 17th – View the film “Masculinity” (and watch “Brotherhood” on your own before next Wed)
    Feb 24th -  View the film “Leadership” (and watch “Fatherhood” on your own before next Wed)
    March 3rd - View the film “Family” (and watch “Life” on your own before next Wed)
    March 10th - View the film “Prayer” (and watch “Suffering” on your own before next Wed)
    March 17th - View the film “Sacramental Life” (and watch “Spiritual Warfare” on your own before next Wed)
    March 24th - View the film “Evangelization”
    March 31st – View the film “Cornerstone”
