Joe Catholic is a Catholic lay apostolate created for men by men. Our mission is to empower men to become the spiritual leaders of their families. Iron sharpens iron. (Prv 27:17). We provide when with resources to help learn their faith, so they can live their faith and share their faith.
Joe Catholic now meets the First and Third Saturday of each month, bright and early at 7:00 AM in the Family Formation building at St. Catherine of Siena in Carrollton, TX. Over forty men have attended at least one gathering and we consistently have 20+ men at each get together. We have settled on a three prong format: Catholic Toolbox, Saint Talk and FAQ of Faith. Each session lasts about 15-20 minutes and they are non-sequential by design. The Catholic Toolbox is normally a catechetical talk. Saint Talk covers the life of a saint whose feast we will celebrate during the month we are meeting. FAQ of Faith takes an apologetic approach to questions Catholics are often asked by their non-Catholic friends and family. We maintain a casual environment encouraging men to show up late if they have to and leave early when they need. The bottom line is that we want to help men grow in their Catholic faith. - See more at: http://www.thejoecatholic.org/p/about-joe-catholic.html#sthash.BIUu3XlG.dpuf
