Saint Augustine Group
Welcome to the Saint Augustine Men’s Group. You may have heard our group’s patron saint’s wayward prayer, “Lord, make me chaste, but not yet!” By you showing up today, you are proclaiming a different prayer. You are asking God to help make you pure starting today.
Our mission as a Catholic lay apostolate is to help free men from the shackles of pornography and sexual sin in order to live according to God’s plan of chastity.
We have chapters in Fort Wayne and South Bend that gather to support, encourage and pray for one another through a structure rooted in Catholic teaching. We encourage the practice of prayer, the Sacraments, Holy Scripture, accountability and practical tools to help men grow in chastity. We meet every other week at each location for 1 hour. We hope to offer Confession periodically before or after our meetings.
Our goals are to:
* Create a supportive environment rooted in Catholic teaching that helps men overcome pornography and sexual sin.
* Build up men of God to more fully serve the Lord, their families and the Church.
* Instill in the hearts and minds of men the Catholic Church’s view and attitude toward respecting and honoring women.
* Raise awareness of the pervasiveness of pornography and the hurt and pain caused by it.
