About Us

At church, with our families and friends, at work, and in the community, we strive to surrender our lives to the Lord. Through fellowship, we are renewed, strengthened, and challenged to become better husbands, fathers, grandfathers, coaches, friends and servant leaders.

A Brief History   

The Saint Jude's Catholic Men's Ministry program was started over fifteen years ago and began as a "bible study". Then Bishop Kaffer, formerly the State Chaplin of the Illinois Chapter of the Knights of Columbus, inspired our leaders through the Holy Spirit to start men's ministries in local churches.  His charge, combined with the dedicated and passionate support from Fr. Don Bates and the visionary support from the "Fishers Of Men" in Joliet, allowed our ministry to benefit from many larger-scale projects and leadership development opportunities.  Ever since, we have been on a faith-filled mission to light fires in the hearts of men.
