Men's Formation - That Man Is You

Over the past few years, Our Lady of Joy has sponsored a nationally acclaimed program for men. "That Man is You!" is an interactive mens program focused on the development of men in the modern world. It combines the best research from science with the teachings of the Catholic faith and the wisdom of the saints to develop the vision of authentic men capable of transforming themselves, their families and greater society.

We begin another year with Steve Bollman, program developer, who seeks to transform men into apostles of the new springtime where they personally help lay the foundation for the rebirth of Christian society. Experience the power of transformation based upon the superabundant mercy of the Father. Dare to embark on this worthwhile program. Forty plus men have attended each Friday session over the past two years.

"The program continues to evolve and inform and inspire me. From my own perspective I enjoy your examination of the Church history, current teachings, the saints' lives and how all this relates to our current life. Where we are and what we are losing sight of should be our Christian-centered journey in life."
