Fishers of Men

Fishers of Men

Fishers of Men – As Fishers of Men, we make an active response to Christ’s exhortation to the first apostles and to all members of the Catholic Church. When our Lord Jesus Christ came upon the two fishermen, Peter and Andrew, they were out on the Sea of Galilee, working to catch fish to support their livelihood. Seeing them at work, our Lord Jesus Christ called out to them saying, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” (Mark 1:17). Inspired by Christ’s call, they dropped everything to go with Him, leaving behind everything they had formerly known and lived for, to willingly follow after him and learn to become his Fishers of Men. In this way, we work together to seek ways of detaching ourselves from the triviality of the secular world and strive as a brotherhood for the eternal happiness of the next. We strive to fully understand the joyful message of Christ contained in the Gospel and to spread to all those around us. Furthermore, we strive for Catholic orthodoxy; that is: to truly know, to understand, and to follow the teachings of the Catholic Church, especially in matters that are becoming more easily overlooked in the modern world.
