The Catholic Watchmen are men are challenging men, “as iron sharpens iron” (Pr. 27:17), to live out the seven disciplines. It is not an exclusive club, but a movement; not a product, but a prayer men offer together for the Church. The Catholic Watchmen is led by the bishops of our Archdiocese and lay leaders with support of the Office of Evangelization at the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis.
First Saturday Mass - Every First Saturday the Catholic Watchmen gather for Mass at 8:15am (with confessions available before Mass at 7:45am), then for breakfast and a video.

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to be faithful in following your leadership and actively participate in your mission. May I walk in your provision and never step out of your divine protection. Help me to be a faithful leader in my home and parish by walking in wisdom, sacrifice and love. Help me to provide for my family and my parish, both physically and spiritually, knowing that heaven is our reward. May I faithfully fulfill my duty to protect those entrusted to me, both physically and spiritually. Like St. Joseph, may I humbly fulfill the duties that have been placed upon me as a man of God.
St. Joseph, Pray for me! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
