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 6:30 to 8 am in the Parish Hall using the following format with Online Zoom Session also available for those who prefer not to attend in person:
Doors open at 6:30 for coffee, video starts at 7:00, small group discussions at 7:30, dismiss at 8:00.
Upcoming Topics and Dates for 2020
Please Note: it is not necessary to attend all dates to participate in our group, as the topics are independent talks that do not build on each other from week to week. Of course, we encourage you to attend as often as possible to get the most out of this program.
TMIY Spring Semester
THE WILL TO LOVE

The 11AM Traditional Choir is looking for additional members. If you have a desire to worship God in song, can carry a tune, and can commit to a weekly rehearsal, we’d love to have you join us. We are working towards a fantastic Dedication Ceremony for the new Church.
Rehearsals are Thursdays from 7:30-9:00 pm upstairs in Room 202. The Children’s Choir will begin rehearsing soon. We will email all parents of previous cherubs and post a bulletin notice when we have a firm start date. The Children’s choir will be singing at many of the 8:30am masses later in the fall.
If you would like to participate in any of the music ministries or need further information, please contact Dan Marcacci, Director of Music via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
