That Man Is You

“The program… was extremely beneficial to me. As I’ve been looking at the world at 67 years old, I’ve been married, raised my children, and wished I’d have had a class like this when I was younger.” – Testimonial from TMIY participant, Annunciation Church, Altamonte Springs, FL

Don’t let that regret be yours! That Man is You will begin our third season next week! Our Sunday morning session will meet September 24 at 7:30am in the Mothers Room, and our Wednesday morning session will meet September 27 at 6:00am in the Parish Hall!

Call Larry Hanson or Andy DelaBarre about joining! Each season is unique – new participants are always welcome!

 

 
Content

That Man is You! honestly addresses the pressures and temptations that men face in our modern culture, especially those relating to their roles as husbands and fathers.  The program harmonizes current social and medical science with the teachings of the Church and the wisdom of the saints to develop the vision of man fully alive.  It is particularly indebted to the teachings of the Second Vatican Council and Pope John Paul II.

Over the course of three years, That Man is You! successively considers the three most important relationships in a man’s life: his relationship with God, his relationship with his spouse and his relationship with his children.  More detailed information regarding program content may be found in the course description for the individual years.

Results

That Man is You! has consistently demonstrated the ability to attract men and transform their lives. The typical parish can expect to attract 5% - 10% of the men registered in the parish.  Approximately 12% of parishes will attract even larger numbers. It is not uncommon for programs to have more than 100 men.

Independent research from a Faith Advisor to The Gallup Poll confirms the ability of That Man is You! to radically transform lives.  As a group, men entering That Man is You! were in the bottom quartile on the Gallup Poll Spiritual Commitment Index.  By the end of the first year, they were well within the top quartile.  Indeed, the change was more than 3 times the level typically considered significant forsuccessful programs. 

Times: Wednesday: 6:00- 7:00 a.m.
Sunday: 7:30-8:30 a.m. 

That Man is You: Testimonial

That Man Is You was started last year. There are 7 men in the Sunday morning group which meets in the hall at 7:15. We start the DVD by 7:30 and it last about 20-30 minutes. There were topic questions to discuss among us. At first there was a commitment to take the time to do it, but after a few weeks you looked forward to the DVD and discussion following. Everyone enjoyed the program and looks forward to next year’s program.

There were many things we took from this program.  A lot of it was stuff that made you look at things in a different way.  One of the first items was what can we do to bring people back to religion?  From early on in time people would stray away from God when times in their lives were good but when trouble or disaster hits their lives one gets down and starts to pray.  In several of Father’s homilies this summer he has given a new look on what we took from the program. Religion is like ones senses (like smell of touch).  Religion is there for us to use or let it sit idle.  The more you seek the more you will crave it.  It can become a wonderful thing if we would only slowdown and take a better look at ourselves and others.  You are never too old to get something out of this program.  For we all have the same goal in life, which is to get to Heaven while helping others.
