“We’re moving!” To a new website and blog …

Please remember that CMCS is now at CMCSMen.net and we are blogging there, and that you will be getting emails as usual if you’re subscribed to the list.

The dust is almost settled from the construction, and we think you will like our new home. Really, though, think of it as more of a portal – to help you get to where you are going on your spiritual journey – for the annual Bishop Perry Men’s Forum, and a point of entry for a new comer to Catholic Men Chicago Southalnd. Because most everything there will be shared with you through the mailing list.

That’s the way things are today in this digital information age, we like our interests fed to us in our busy lives. So, other than a welcome message from Bishop Perry, we’ll get starting with blogging next week over there.

This Catholic Chicago Men Blog will stay public for the foreseeable future to serve as an archive of sorts, and the event and apostolate pages will be moved to the new home.

Come and take a peek and tell us what you think!

Frank J Casella, CMCS-Director

Help Catholic Men Nurture Their Spirituality in Chicago Year Round

Since the Catholic Chicago Men Blog has become such a popular facet of Catholic Men Chicago Southland Apostolate (CMCS), we decided to take it a step further and create this donate page which will allow you to directly support the online resources, and the next phase of this apostolate.

From the very beginning we wanted the online resources like this to be free. We’ve never charged for it, and don’t plan to—not only for you, but for readers across the Archdiocese of Chicago and beyond.

Likewise, in 2020 we’re ready for a new decade of encouragement and support for “Living the Goodness of a Catholic Man” But to get there, we need your help!

Don’t delay. Make your gift to CMCS Apostolate online or by using this mail-in form (PDF File).

Since 2004, Catholic Men Chicago Southland (CMCS) started as an inspiration of a Catholic laymen and a Catholic deacon, who shared their vision with their local Vicar – Bishop Joseph Perry.

Since 2009 this Catholic Chicago Men Blog has reminded men and helped them to do what is in their power to do, namely, be holy and courageous men, to improve their marriages, be better fathers to their children, grow in virtue, serve the needs of others more generously, be active participants in their parishes, and be better citizens.

CMCS has a practical way of evangelizing Catholic men young and old, and their families, of helping them to understand what the culture often rejects – how men and women should relate to one another in complementary ways and how important husbands and fathers are to children – every single day.

This blog is designed then to further the CMCS mission and help foster Catholic Men in personal holiness, to make Jesus Christ the center of our daily lives.

Here you will find encouragement and support for “Living the Goodness of a Catholic Man”, as well as Catholic information and updates and articles to support the CMCS Vision: To Nurture Catholic Men’s Spirituality.

And we can’t do this critically important work without you.

Would you consider helping more Catholic Men grow in their love and understanding of God through a gift to CMCS today?

Your gift to CMCS will not only help us reach more men with original Catholic content, plus articles from Bishop Joseph Perry, but it will ultimately:

  • Continue the experience from the annual CMCS Forum, for Catholic men in Vicariate VI in the archdiocese, to help us make life adjustments that can be felt for three generations.
  • Solid input to men across the Archdiocese on how we can live faithfully the implications of our baptism and discipleship in Christ for these times. What CMCS is doing in Vicariate VI is not for everyone, and men in other Vicariates in the archdiocese want to see all we’re doing.
  • Help Catholic Men to be the priest of our household and deepen personal devotion to the Sacraments
  • Provide hope and restoration of marriages and families, and live out the Bishop Perry’s Virtues of a Catholic man with Jesus Christ and His Word.

Don’t delay. Make your gift to CMCS online or by using this mail-in form (PDF File).

PS. Please consider sending a monthly donation, so that we can have steady income to plan on. Makes a huge difference to concentrate more on the blog and the apostolate than on the business of the blog and the apostolate.
