Tuesdays at 6:45pm

Just as we go to the gym to train and grow strong, so too that we must grow stronger in our faith. As the Catholic Men's Fellowship chapter of St. Joseph's in Pomona, we are open to men of all ages to strengthen their faith in Christ and to become better sons, brothers, husbands, fathers and friends as we strive towards and embrace the perfect masculinity of our Lord, Jesus Christ, while we lead our lives like our parish patron saint - Saint Joseph - as he answered in saying "Yes" to our Lord.

Our Core Values Are:

  • Be a Man for Jesus

  • Be a Man for Others

  • Be a Man of Integrity

  • Be a Man of Forgiveness and Discipline

  • Be a Man of Prayer and Responsibility

  • Be a Man of Humility and Love

  • Be a Man on a Mission
