Men's Group: Borromeo Brothers  - St. Charles Borromeo

Saturdays, 7:30-9:00am (virtual)

Men of all ages on pilgrimage together to know and love God striving to become whom He has called us to be. Join us each Saturday morning for brotherhood and discussion about living out our vocation as Christian men. 

The Borromeo Brothers are currently viewing a new series entitled, Into the Breach, a 12-episode video series from the Knights of Columbus that seeks to answer what it means to be a Catholic man in today's world. Inspired by Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted's apostolic exhortation to Catholic men, Into the Breach tells men they are made for greatness and challenges them to achieve it by founding their lives on God and pursuing heroic virtue. Each episode explores a different aspect of authentic Catholic masculinity and features well-known Catholic speakers, as well as the personal story of a man who has deeply experienced the episode's topic in his own life. 

Borromeo Brothers meets (via Zoom) each Saturday morning from 7:30 - 9:00 AM for fellowship, learning about our faith, and discussion about living out our vocation as Christian men. 

Listen to our parish podcast to hear some of the talks given at our Borromeo Brothers meetings!
