Catholic men are called to ‘stand up and be counted’

.- Catholic men in the Mid-South are invited to stand up and be counted at the first-ever Men's Morning of Spirituality in Memphis.

"This, I believe, will be a significant spiritual outreach to our men, which will empower them to become strong examples of faith in their families and in the wider community,” said Bishop Terry Steib of Memphis in a letter of endorsement to his priests.

“The Holy Spirit is providing us with an opportunity to enhance the spirituality of the Catholic men of our diocese," he added. The bishop will attend and preside at the Mass.

Similar mornings of prayer have already been hugely successful in New Orleans, San Diego, Boston, and Cincinnati, drawing thousands of Catholic men, reported the Weakely County Press. They offer men an opportunity to strengthen their faith and commitment to their families and community.

The morning of prayer in Memphis will be held Oct. 28 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Germantown. The pastor, Fr. J. Edwin Creary, and the OLPH Fishers of Men prayer group organized it.

Speakers at the event included Scott Leary, J.D., federal prosecutor for the U.S. Department of Justice, who will give a witness, and Danny Abramowicz, former All-Pro NFL wide receiver for the New Orleans Saints, who will be the keynote speaker. Abramowicz also authored "Spiritual Workout of a Former Saint".

The men will have the opportunity to receive the sacrament of reconciliation and to participate in Eucharistic Adoration. The event will conclude with a free lunch.
