Fall Stewardship Update
Without You There Is No CMCS


Hey, CMCS Men and Friends! 


I hope you're doing well! 


I really will keep this short so we can get to The Virtues of a Catholic Man.


Let me begin by offering my gratitude and appreciation for you – the CMCS Man. 

Without you there is no CMCS.


Our small team always keeps that top-of-mind with every decision we make, and the spiritual encouragement you seek in doing God's work of a Catholic man.  


I wanted to give you an update on our Fall appeal. Somehow, thousands of you didn't click open my email Wednesday with my stewardship update. 


I'm not sure if I messed up or something (as I have done before), but I wanted to make sure you got the update. Either way, I believe many of you meant to send a gift, but will appreciate this extra nudge - donate.cmcsmen.net


We have just 7 days left hit our fall campaign goal of $700.00 before the end of the month.


As of this morning, we are trailing behind, still needing to raise over 80% of our goal - donate.cmcsmen.net

Catholic Men Chicago Southland (CMCS) is engaged in fostering holy and courageous men and proclaiming the importance of husbands and fathers to children and the family.


May God return to you double what you give to us! 


Thanks for considering our cause! 


Frank J Casella, 
CMCS Co-founder & Executive Director


PS. The CMCS Founders have always believed in mission over money. We rely on prayer. We want to perform the work of the Lord, and He has to think about the means for us to do that. Thank you again to our readers and donors for your prayers and support!  If just 10% of our readers gave $10 or more, we would succeed in our fundraising goal! - donate.cmcsmen.net
(To those of you new to CMCS) Many men tell us that Bishop Perry's Virtues of a Catholic Man helps to focus their daily walk with the Lord:
Virtues of a Catholic Man
  • A Catholic man has some sense of what or whom he would die for if necessary.
  • A Catholic man passes his faith to his children and sees to their religious education.
  • A Catholic man informs himself about his faith, reads Scripture, select Catholic literature, and studies the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
  • A Catholic man insures that there are sacred symbols in his household, such as, a crucifix(es), Bible, use of sacramentals such as the Advent wreath, Christmas cre`che, etc.
  • A Catholic man leads prayer in his household at significant domestic events, such as, birth, Baptism, graduation, marriage, illness, death, and other special meals and events with use of a passage from Scripture or other Catholic sources.
  • A Catholic man practices presence with his wife and children.
  • A Catholic man invests himself in some project or apostolate at the parish or diocesan level.
  • A catholic man is faithful to his wife, his children, his Church and his friends, indeed all his commitments
