That Man Is You

Men of St Pius: Last week we discovered our calling to discipleship.  This discipleship is always met with headwinds. The devil is perpetually in attack-mode to extinguish our fires and shrink our hearts into mediocrity.  Jesus himself was tempted in the desert by the world, the flesh and the devil.  With his great sense of humor, Paul George will help us understand and identify how we fight back.  We meet Saturdays, 6:30-8:00am, CC #2, coffee and refreshments provided.
