A message from the CMCS Director
The Catechism in a Year (with Bishop Andrew Cozzens)
Dear CMCS-Men and Friends, 
As Memorial Day approaches, my thoughts turn to all those who have fought and died for our freedoms. I hope that you take the time to reflect on the liberties and freedom we all enjoy, and remember the sacrifice made by so many. This is an important holiday, and it should never be forgotten. 
And if you have served, or are serving, thank you for your service! 
I daily listen to this podcast 'The Catechism in a Year (with Fr. Mike Schmitz)' and found this episode to be so enlightening that I would like to share it with you.  It is 45 minutes, so listen to it in the car or during time of reflecting over this long weekend. I pray this supports you in being the priest of your home, in the domestic church. Enjoy!
Part 2 of the Catechism—the Second Pillar—is about “how we worship” through the Liturgy and the sacraments. Fr. Mike sits down with Bishop Andrew Cozzens to discuss the significance of the way we worship God and how Jesus meets us in the sacraments.

The CMCS Vision: Nurturing Catholic Men's Spirituality in Chicago Southland.

The CMCS Mission: Catholic Men Chicago Southland (CMCS) fosters Catholic Men in personal holiness, to make Jesus Christ the center of our daily lives. 
CMCS is a Catholic Apostolate of Most Reverend Joseph N. Perry of the Archdiocese of Chicago.  Executive Director, Frank J Casella

“CMCS has been a great help in my walk with Christ on a daily basis.  I am surrounded by secular surroundings everyday and CMCS brings me “home.”  This group of men keep me grounded and express charity and humility, which is not easy to find these days.  The opportunity to listen to the wisdom of Bishop Perry is always enlightening and helps me in my growth in understanding the beauty of the Catholic faith.”


“My benefit from CMCS comes from the community of men I gather with and, our shared, interests, desires, and struggles with leading a Christian life.  Our community helps me realize that I am not alone as I strive to be a servant of God.  In this age where we race from chore to chore, and responsibility to responsibility CMCS provides me an opportunity to take time and think about God.  A time to step back to think about where I am at, where I have been, and where I want to be in God’s eyes when I enter eternity.  Of course the wisdom and guidance provided to us through the words of Bishop Perry are as the commercial says ………….. PRICELESS.”
