CATHOLIC MEN FOR JESUS CHRIST
GET TO KNOW US
Men Growing in Christ through Education and Fellowship
Established in 1997, Catholic Men for Jesus Christ recognizes that true happiness can only be found in Jesus. It further recognizes that we are not meant to answer his call to “follow me” alone. CMJC strives to bring men together to build each other up, support one another, and challenge one another on our spiritual journeys to become the men that we are created and called to be.
Living your daily life as a Catholic man is increasingly countercultural. Ever greater demands are competing for our time, our talent, and our treasure. We are offered models of living by contemporary society which glorify the individual’s desires for things and encourage us to ask “What’s in it for me?” and “If it feels good, do it.” Ignored are the costs that embracing such tenets of living have on our relationships with our family, our friends, our community and—most importantly—with our God.
We work to support men in their efforts to live full Christian lives and spread the gospel by promoting events and ministries that educate and provide opportunities for fellowship.
One of the best ways to grow in the love of our God is through the fellowship and learning that comes from ongoing participation in formal Men's Ministry.
Most typically groups of men will gather regularly in a parish setting to study, to learn and, perhaps most importantly, to share thoughts in group discussion.

We hold Evenings of Reflections at various locations throughout the Diocese. Our Evenings of Reflection offer the men of our Diocese the opportunity to worship, share fellowship and hear an inspiring word during the middle of the week.
A typical evening begins with Mass at our host parish. We then serve a casual dinner which gives us a chance to share a meal with our brothers in Christ. Following dinner, we welcome a speaker or a panel of speakers to bring attendees an inspirational message. After our message, we break into small groups for a period of discussion and reflection.
