That Man Is You – TMIY


FALL 2017

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

We successfully completed our first year of the TMIY program. I believe that the program has started you on a path to understanding how the Holy Spirit continually blesses you with graces to do the work of Jesus in the world. I am now inviting you to spread the word to all gentlemen for the second year of the program.

That Man Is You! – The Unveiling of Love is the second installment of That Man is You! The following are the objectives of That Man Is You!The Unveiling of Love:

  • Help men grasp the depth and beauty of the Church’s vision of love and marriage by considering 7 “moments” in the Catholic Nuptial Mass;
  • Provide a mystical vision of the beauty of love that lies behind the “mundane details” of everyday life; and
  • Relate stories from around the globe of couples who have lived the mystery of love to its very end.

The 13 weeks in the fall session will enable men to take the next step in male leadership by attaining clarity of thought and developing integrity of action regarding the Church’s vision of love and marriage.

The schedule is as follows:

Dates:  Every Sunday, September 10 through December 17 (No meetings Nov, 5 and Nov. 25)

Time:  7:30 – 8:30 am

Location:  Parish Hall

The first meeting starts September 10!

I am very grateful to the Core Planning Team, formed by gentlemen who are current and former St. Cecilia School parents – Scott Cwiertny, Marcos Ramirez, Benny Saputo, Javier Vallejo, David Mello, Randy Fiorentino and Todd Harnett, for their tireless time and talent they have given to prepare and put together the second Fall session held here at St. Cecilia.

I strongly recommend all gentlemen, relatives and friends, to register and attend.  You are invited to arrive for a 7:15 am check in, which includes fellowship, coffee and donuts. The session starts at 7:30am and lasts only 60 minutes: the first 30 minutes consists of a video presentation, followed by 30 minutes of reflection and sharing. Since the session ends at 8:30am, it still provides enough time for you to return home with a renewed spirit and to also return for Mass with your wife and children.

For questions, registration and more information, please meet the members of the TMIY Team at their table outside after Mass. I am looking forward to seeing you at the That Man Is You program on Sunday, September 10, at 7:30am.


Fr. Bao
