Dear Visitor,
After several years of study and pastoral work, assiduously addressing family issues, my superiors have encouraged me to establish an outreach to men in order to address the complex challenges and difficulties they often face in growing humanly and spiritually in the present age.
The degree of disillusionment I've encountered in men who are striving to reach simple human happiness and spiritual peace is great. Sustaining a healthy life's balance is frequently challenging for males given the far-reaching effects of developmental conflicts, lack of male mentoring, emasculating formative experiences, and cultural influences that beset them. Men often find themselves isolated, profoundly dissatisfied, unfulfilled, and desperately seeking answers.
At the present, I am embarking on a more intense outreach to men -- particularly by way of seminars and parish missions -- toward their advancement in genuine masculine identity and character integration. Among the many objectives, I strive to call men toward their natural duty to mentor younger men and adolescents, inspire then to sacrificially honor their commitments, coach them to assemble and work in small teams, and summon them to defend their family, Church and society. All my work finds its basis upon sound theological and human principles, so that men may experience the longing of the Psalmist: "Strengthen me with a perfect spirit" (Ps 50:14).
Y ou can e-mail me for any inquiries at: frpchavez@aol.com. Let me know if you would like to receive a CD of a seminar I gave on "The Quest for Masculine Identity." This address was actually delivered to a woman's group. Thus, men and women, husbands and wives, can positively benefit from it. I would be happy to send one in the mail as soon as I can. A donation would be gratefully accepted.
Thanking you in advance, I ask for your prayers and support in this apostolate.
Kindly peruse this website developed for the sake of re-forging men in society!
Blessings, in Christ,
Fr. Phillip F. Chavez, Solt
