Catholic Men’s Groups

I have found it beneficial to serve as a Knight of Columbus. If you are man enough you should join us. Whether you’re a Knight or not, though, you gotta have community.

Good Catholic Websites for Guys

Last week the old Tactical Catholic tried to spend a little extra time researching the Catholic web world for sites that would benefit Catholic men like us.  See, when I started The Tactical Catholic site, part of the drive behind it was to fill a niche.  I wanted to build a site to challenge Catholic guys to get off their collective arses and be passionate about their faith.  What I’ve been discovering is that there are lots of good Catholic web sites built with the same idea in mind.  This is not frustrating but amazingly encouraging.  Guys, take this as a sign that Catholic men around the United States are manning up and taking their faith to the world.  I am reading about men who have Bible studies together, who pray together, who lead their families in nightly prayers, who sing – yes sing – in Mass, who love their wives with every ounce of their being, and let’s not forget those Catholic men who have answered God’s call to the Sacrament of Holy Orders.  It’s a good time to be a Catholic guy on the web.

What I’m going to do over the next few weeks is catalogue Catholic men’s websites.  Take a moment to tell me which web sites are beneficial to you in your walk with Jesus Christ.  You are welcome to use the combox below.  Recommend a website and tell me why it’s a good one.  While you’re at it, tell your buddies to make their recommendations as well.

Guys, if  you are the owner of a Catholic website geared towards men, I’d like to network with you.  If we can take the time to know one another and our goals as fellow ministers for the Gospel, we should be able to find ways to help one another.  In fact, I would be willing to share space and allow some of you guys to guest write or share articles on this site so that more guys can be exposed to your materials.  Contact me and we’ll talk about it.  In the meantime, keep sending me links for sites.

Pray for Your Bishop

Catholic Bishops are easy targets for blame when a diocese has problems. It happens to Priests when a parish has issues. What are you doing to help? Read the rest of this entry
