College Knights: Leaders for Life

 


 

We live in a time of crisis for religious faith that must be met by men with a heartfelt embrace of masculine virtue. To outline the challenges we face and devise a plan of battle, Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted of Phoenix has written this groundbreaking document, Into the Breach. Addressed originally to the men in his diocese, the document is made available here to all Catholics by the Knights of Columbus. The Knights are pleased to partner with Bishop Olmsted in making this document more widely available to all college men and in providing the following study guide.

Both are available as PDF downloads by clicking below:

Into the Breach College Study Guide


Supreme Knight Carl Anderson has challenged all college councils to facilitate a reading and discussion of Into the Breach on their campuses this school year. Meet with your chaplain to discuss the best way to implement the Into the Breach program. Different approaches will suit different councils. You might conduct an eight-week program, in which members weekly read a selection from Into the Breach and meet to discuss it and work toward spiritual goals. You might do an accelerated version of this, meeting a couple of times a week. Or, you might choose to hold a weekend retreat centered on Into the Breach.

However, Into the Breach does not end with reading and discussion. Your council must provide opportunities for men on campus to grow in faith. Encourage friendships with other Catholic men so that students can grow together with Christ. Men in brotherhood with other Catholic men pray more, go to Mass and confession more frequently, and read Scripture more often. Men engaged in faith can then best discern the vocation and God’s will for their life. Your council must facilitate this Catholic brotherhood.
