The SSJ Knights invite all men of the parish to view Into The Breach, a 12-episode video series that seeks to answer the question of what it means to be a man and how to live as a man in today's world. Each episode focuses on a different aspect of authentic Catholic masculinity and features interviews with well-known Catholic commentators. Each episode runs approximately 12 minutes.
