HOLY NAME SOCIETY
The Holy Name Society promotes respect for the most Holy Name of God, faith in the Catholic Church and its teaching authority, and loyal respect to both our civil and religious responsibilities.
This men’s ministry group aims to promote the spiritual wellbeing of the men of the parish, to assist and encourage club members to actively participate in parish activities, to foster cooperation with other parish organizations for the common good, and to perform other special tasks or projects that promote or contribute toward the general welfare of the parish and community.
The chapter at St. John the Apostle has been reactivated. We welcome you to stop by our next meeting — Meetings are held on the last Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm. Confirm by checking the events calendar on the homepage of the website.

FISHERS OF MEN
(Diocese of Joliet)
Our small group gatherings and events are open to ALL men and consist of Scripture study, group discussion, and prayer. We study God's word, but we are not just a Bible study group. We offer support, but we are not just a support group. We discuss various issues, but we are not just a discussion group. We consider social issues, but we are not just a social action group. We help one another and the community, we encourage one another, we pray for one another, we challenge one another, we love one another.
When faced with the important challenges we face today, we have found that it is critical that we are connected with like-minded men, who will lift us up to become the best we can be. We are a group of men who have recognized that we need God's help to become the men He created us to be. We also realize that we need one another to become better men.
