Encouragement from the CMCS Co-founders: 

    "The theme of the entire New Testament is that the infinite God has shown Himself to us in Christ. Faith thus starts with God who through Jesus opens his heart to us and invites us to share in his own divine life. Faith does not simply provide information about who Jesus is. Rather, our faith involves a personal relationship with Christ, a surrender of our whole person with all our understanding, our will and feelings, to God’s self-revelation of Himself to us."
    ~ Bishop Joseph Perry

    "God’s will is almost always much tougher to do than our will. It requires more effort, more discipline, and it yields much less instant gratification. Most unpleasant of all, doing God’s will requires us to surrender our position as the center of the universe (at least in our own minds). We have to put God at the center of the universe and direct our attention toward Him, rather than sit on our little imaginary thrones and expect others to direct their attention toward us."
   ~ Deacon John Rangel

    "Be Pure. Hate evil. Embrace Christ with all your heart! Too many of us men need to surrender our personal agenda to God. We must strive to be transparent with God and with others, and to be more like Christ and less like our old selves."
    ~ Frank J Casella

Dear CMCS-Men and Readers,
Each year, on three occasions, we count on the generosity of readers like you to help us to be a leader in fostering Chicagoland Catholic Men with the New Evangelization. 
Your prayerful and financial support equips us to be advocates for Catholic Manhood - when life, faith, and family - increasingly need defending. We earnestly strive to become more perfect stewards of the gifts and talents entrusted to us - so that more souls can be redeemed in Christ, our hope.
Your support allows us to be the driving force behind CMCS’s work to evangelize Catholic Men and equip them to live out their faith in a world that increasingly challenges them.
To keep Catholic Men Chicago Southland operational for the next four months, we need to raise $700 by October 1st. If you'd like to help us out, please donate today at Thank you for your prayers and support!


On behalf of Bishop Perry and the CMCS Team, 


God bless you where you need it most! 


Frank J Casella
CMCS Co-founder & Executive Director
