TMIY is a 26-week interactive men’s program combining the best research from science with the teachings of the Catholic faith and the wisdom of the saints to develop the vision of a man fully alive. By honestly addressing the pressures and temptations that men face in our modern culture, That Man is You! Seeks to form men who will be capable of transforming homes and society.
Began Saturday, September 17
This year's program will help integrate the 7 Covenants of TMIY into practical implementations for issues men face in today's world and culture. In short, this year will be dedicated to "walking the talk" and providing participants the opportunity and framework to build out their very own spiritual plan of life. You will learn concrete steps and doable actions to adopt to make progress in your spiritual life.
That Man Is You is a program started in Houston, Texas and now is at St. Vincent de Paul (starting August 2010). It tackles real issues facing real men. It looks at the leadership role that has been entrusted to men and address the temptations and struggles men face in the culture that attack authentic manhood. Finally, it helps formulate a plan that allows men to overcome these obstacles.
The program is hosted every Saturday morning in the Lounge. We gather at 6:30 am for breakfast, coffee and some entertaining videos. Then there's a presentation at 7am that combines the best scientific research with the teachings of the Church and wisdom of the saints. It's followed at 7:30 with breakout groups that provide the opportunity to discuss what's been presented. Finally, we are on the road by 8 am so that we can be back at home or available for Saturday morning Mass at 8:15. Held September through April, men are invited to join TMIY at any point in the year!
The best way to judge a program is by its success. Men who've attended the program and have been Catholic their whole lives say this is the program they've been waiting for. They consider it a 'home run' saying it is hard to imagine how the program content could get any better. Priests say that it literally transforms men and saves marriages. It's that powerful. From a test parish in Houston, Texas the That Man is You! Program has quickly spread throughout the United States and Canada.
