“1st and 2nd Corinthians" Catholic Scripture Study InternationalJoin other men in studying 1st and 2nd Corinthians and learn about the problems experienced in the Church at Corinth . In his Letters to the Corinthians Paul addresses ongoing problems including dissension, immorality, lawsuits, liturgical abuses and their tendency to fall prey to "false teachers". Paul tackles each of these problems with his typical spiritual zeal, strengthening their faith and commitment to build up the Body of Christ. Two thousand years later, as we struggle with much the same problems, Paul's words of wisdom are both pertinent and valuable!

Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother presented by Dr. Edward Sri is an in-depth eight part series on how Mary works in our daily lives and draws us closer to her Divine Son. As Catholics, we have a profound reverence for the Blessed Mother. We turn to her in prayer, in the Mass, in the Rosary, and in Marian devotions. We honor her with special feasts celebrating the significant events in her life. We place images of her in our churches and homes. This study is an extraordinary pilgrimage that reveals Mary's unique role in God's Kingdom and in our lives. Filmed on location in the Holy Land, it will place you in the midst of the powerful drama of her earthly life, taking you through her joys...and her sorrows. You will learn how she works in our lives today, drawing us ever closer to her Divine Son. Seeing Mary in this way will change you forever. Mary will become a part of your daily life, and in your daily life, you will become more like Christ.
We started our men’s group, That Man Is You, in 2003. After 10 years, we decided to change our name to Catholic Men Called to Be Saints. We decided on this name because Paul told all Christians to strive to be saints and we thought that met our goal of being the best husbands, fathers and men in our families, and to strive daily in pleasing God and do what it takes to be a saint. Our group has been an inspiration to me and has helped me realize that even someone like me has a chance to be a Saint, something I never thought possible. It has given me hope and allowed me to grow in my faith journey. – Mark Hudec
