MEN OF THE CROSS – Maximum Impact Plan:

Don’t Go Alone:  join an existing men’s group.  If that is not an option, see our Seven Simple Steps for starting one.

Daily Prayer:  commit to setting time aside every day to be in prayer with God.  Be realistic, start small and keep growing.

Weekly Mass:  be sure you’re celebrating Mass at least on a weekly basis.  If possible, attend daily Mass.

Monthly Confession:  Put this into your calendar and make it a family event.

Annual Retreat:  once a year attend a spiritual retreat

Seven Simple Steps for Starting a Men’s Group*

1. Begin with Pray & Discernment – but don’t be passive.

2. Seek input and guidance from your pastor – make this ongoing.

3. Determine meeting frequency and session length.

4. Determine location that best matches group:  home? parish? other?

5. Begin and end each gathering with a prayer, giving thanks, asking for petitions and praying for one another.

6. Have in progress at all times a Bible study or spiritual book reading.

7. Relax and enjoy  Maintain balance of social and spiritual fellowship

Welcome to Fathers for Good, an initiative for men by the Knights of Columbus.

Whether you are a seasoned dad, a new dad, a dad to be, or a single guy wanting to know more about fatherhood, this Web site is for you.

There is a role only a father can fill and gifts only a father can give. In a culture that often does not favor fatherhood or masculine virtue, we wish to highlight the unique contributions of men, husbands and fathers. The world would be lacking without them.

We also welcome wives who want to support their husbands in becoming the best fathers they can be.

Catholic men’s events occur all around the country, but men in nearby parishes or dioceses aren’t always aware of what’s available. Become part of our network by letting us know about your event and we’ll promote it to our growing list of Catholic leaders. Together we can reach more men with the richness of our Catholic faith. Join our mission to help men discover or rediscover the Catholic faith and live with integrity, servant leadership, and boldness in their marriages, families, parishes and local communities.
