Welcome to Catholic Men’s Fellowship of Kalamazoo, Michigan
We are committed Catholic men who recognize our need for God’s help. We gather in Christ’s presence in an atmosphere of trust, equality and anonymity to share personal feelings and experiences. We unconditionally accept each other and prayerfully support one another. We are committed to growing closer to Jesus Christ, encouraging all of our brothers to study Scripture and the Catechism, to practice and share our Catholic Faith, to lead our families in holiness, to support our clergy and support each other spiritually.
The major challenge in maintaining our religious heritage in a contemporary world filled with secular distractions is to keep ourselves from being too busy pursuing personal gratification that we no longer hear the word of God. As a group of men, we seek to rekindle Catholic principles and conduct in the lives of the men who worship in our Diocese.
Call it a revival, an awakening. Call it a work of the Holy Spirit at the grassroots level. The emergence of new ministries with men is a welcome development within the Church.
