That Man is You! (TMIY)
We’d love to have you be a part of this life-changing program!
MOQ is hosting a unique fellowship for the men in our parish. That Man is You! is an interactive, multimedia men’s program focused upon the development of authentic male leadership and explores men in their relationship to God, to their spouse and to their children. It combines the best research from science with the teachings of the Catholic faith and the wisdom of the saints to develop the vision of authentic men capable of transforming themselves, their families and greater society.
The Battle of the Bride enables men to take the next step in male leadership. By attaining clarity of thought and developing integrity of action regarding the Church’s vision of love and marriage, men are able to transform their homes into the foundation for a new springtime of Christianity.
Our Sessions will be held on Friday mornings starting on September 11, 2020 from 6:00 to 7:30 am in the Parish Hall using the following format with Online Zoom Session also available for those who prefer not to attend in person:
6 to 6:30 am Arrival; Coffee and Refreshments served

Faith Formation Registration 2020-2021
During the last 5 months of pandemic, we have been called to renew our faith and strengthen our families. The Holy Father has reminded us that the strength of our faith depends on the family, the “domestic church”. The Catechism teaches us that the parents are the primary educators of the faith and the role of the church is to assist them on this journey. In this time of pandemic, the Archdiocese of Atlanta has called us to re-focus our faith formation program and be family centered.
Mary Our Queen’ Faith Formation plan is to follow a “Family Table” model. Our program encompasses the entire family from Pre-K to adulthood with a choice to register for either an At-Home or Hybrid model to suit the needs of your family in light of COVID 19 restrictions.
Per the Archdiocese of Atlanta guidelines, we will follow the Gwinnett County School System’s decision for online classes only and begin the Faith Formation year by only offering the At Home “Family Table” model of Faith Formation. If conditions change, we will open the Hybrid model at that time.
Registration is required and may be processed through THIS LINK.
To receive discount, register no later than Saturday, August 15.
Registration Fees may be paid on the website (through Online Giving) or by check payable to MOQ:
After August 15, Fees increase to
$100 per child; 3 or more children, $250
Sacramental Programs will be free standing and separate from faith formation weekly classes.

All MOQ Women are invited to participate in this 22-lesson Bible study that will take you on an exciting journey closer to the heart of God! Opening Your Heart is an incredibly effective guide to deep, lasting transformation of the heart. Join us as we explore the core questions that we need to wrestle with if we want to experience all that God has for us.
- How can I conquer my fears?
- What is the role of the Holy Spirit in my life?
- What does the Eucharist have to do with my friendship with Christ?
- What are the limits of Christ’s forgiveness?
- Why and how should I pray?
- What is the role of suffering in my life?
- What challenges will I face in my efforts to follow Jesus more closely
Each weekly lesson is divided into 5 short daily sections which can be completed in about 20 to 30 minutes. The study guide titled Open Your Heart (purchased from the WWP online store) and a Catholic Bible are all that you need. The recommended Bible translation to use for a Walking with Purpose study is the New American Bible (NAB) Revised Edition. The weekly meetings, where we review and discuss the answers from our lesson, may last anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes. We will begin this Fall with virtual sessions via Zoom with the hope that by January we will be able to move to in person sessions.
