Men Need Spiritual Enrichment Now More Than Ever!
Allow God to use YOU to bring HIM to others in need.

The Rosary is one of the most powerful weapons against the principalities and powers, the wickedness and snares of the devil. Recall the very first words Our Lady spoke to St. Dominic when she gave the world the Rosary: “Dear Dominic, do you know which weapon the Blessed Trinity wants to use to reform the world?”
We invite all TMIY men to join us in praying the Rosary every Friday morning. You do not have to be a member of Amici di Giuseppe to join us.
One size does not fit all. This is especially true during these uncertain times of phased, restricted parish re-openings. That’s why TMIY customizes the experience to the specific needs of each parish. This includes:
Don’t put it off. Help parishes provide men the spiritual nourishment they need.

We’ve all come a long way since the original COVID-19 restrictions this past spring. Some key learnings were gleaned along the way. The Paradisus Dei Team now recommends a virtual process for TMIY that follows the in-person meeting format. Learn the process and access the tutorial videos here:
Meet our 2020 Man of the Year – Kevin Gibbs! Fittingly, we call this the St. Joseph Award.
Kevin leads his local core team in Ottawa, was instrumental in helping launch the first 1st annual St. Joseph’s Oratory Pilgrimage to Montreal, and is currently a volunteer on the TMIY Mission Team. He is personally reaching out to over 30 parishes to tell them them about TMIY!
“No matter where you are in your journey, how troublesome your early years have been, how deep the wounds are, how long you have struggled, how many times you have failed, how many times you have slid back into sin, what struggles you have gone through or are going through right now…the Lord knows everything about you and He loves you more than you can imagine. He wants to meet you right where you are…right here …right now… and take you further!” – Kevin Gibbs
St. Joseph is the hidden, silent, yet massive spiritual force behind everything we do in TMIY! The greatest fruit of TMIY would be that more and more men become like St. Joseph. I would like to invite you to an incredible spiritual experience: Join me, Fr. Peter Towsley and 30 TMIY men to the largest shrine in the world dedicated to St. Joseph! Together, we will journey into the heart of this great Saint. Details follow.
Cost $299 – Includes lodging, five meals, three private tours, and metro passes. Travel to and from the retreat site not included. For pilgrims who wish to arrive a day early, add a Thursday night stay to your registration for an extra $100. Thursday pilgrims will enjoy an unforgettable light show within Notre Dame Montreal as well as a visit to see St. Kateri on Friday morning.
Lodging at John XXIII Pavilion Hotel – Just steps away from the Oratory, this quaint retreat center in the heart of downtown Montreal is highly sought after by pilgrims and will make the perfect home base for this event. The entire building is ours for the weekend.
Yours in Christ,
Vice-President, Paradisus Dei

Paradisus Dei would like to share a brand-new video project with you. Reactions to initial viewings have been humbling:
“When can we share this??”
“You need to get this video out…to everybody!”
Paradisus Dei, the creators of the successful That Man is You! men’ program, is reaching the completion of a critical update to their digital infrastructure. This update includes a recently released online Class Management and Communications software, now with integrated streaming video capability. The new TMIY app, also fully integrated, is the last part of this critical update.
Because one of the many exciting aspects of the TMIY experience is the ability for men to view the session content, whether as a means to reinforce/continue their learning or watch missed sessions, the TMIY App has been completely re-developed from the ground-up. Video access is now simpler than ever through the TMIY app, which is provided at no cost to TMIY participants. The app runs natively on Apple or Android devices. These updates result in a much-improved and simpler user experience.
Improvements in this version include:
The last bullet above means that whenever a user updates their account in their new TMIY app, their class information will be automatically updated as well. Core Team Leaders will be able to in contact with class participants who move, change email addresses or phone numbers. The ease of video access also makes it convenient for participants to stay current with their class when they miss a session.
“The material was stellar and truly impacted the men in very profound ways.”
I can tell you the response has been nothing but positive. We initially launched TMIY in fall of 2013, which by the grace of the Holy Spirit resulted in over 200 men attending our first meeting that first Tuesday morning at 6AM. The material was stellar and truly impacted many of the men in very profound ways. Over 3 years, the participating men not only grew in their knowledge and understanding of the Faith, but forged incredible bonds with like-minded men through the fellowship shared in small groups. Tuesday mornings become something familiar, and when the program culminated, many of the men possessed a great hunger for more.
“We desired new ways to attract and draw men closer to God…”
Out of this desire, several of the men created the Society of St. Joseph, a fellowship of men dedicated to formation in the faith, family leadership, and works of mercy with St. Joseph as our model in all these things. We desired new ways to attract and draw men closer to God through other avenues. Furthermore, there was a desire to help provide a coordinated platform to help men put their faith in to action. Drawing on many of the successful aspects of the TMIY program, we were able to provide the men with a familiar structure, while introducing them to new materials and curricula. By the grace of God, however, we were able to keep the men engaged and further challenge them to “be not only hearers, but doers of the Word.” Over the past 2 years the men of various small groups have served in over 30 works of mercy including our collaborative fund-raiser last year that generated over $25,000 for the Veterans treatment court here in Tampa.
“It was a ‘no-brainer.’”
As our committee sat down to discuss the programming for this fall, our formation chair received the information of your latest program, ” A Vision of Man Fully Alive.” It was a “no-brainer”. The material was just what we were looking for at just the right time…a ‘God-incidence’. As we read about this new program and the formation of Amici di Giuseppe, we felt a confirmation that our mission, and decision to run with this program was in alignment with the will of the Father and His foster father.
“…we have been able to engage over 500 men in our own and surrounding parishes.”
Through TMIY and subsequently SSJ for the past 2 years, we have been able to engage over 500 men in our own and surrounding parishes. Thankfully, this year’s program allowed us to provide once again a familiar structure and material that meets men truly wherever they are in their spiritual journey. The first 3 weeks have been phenomenal! Around 120 men attended our first session, with many new faces and something of a homecoming for many of the faces we hadn’t seen for a while. Thank you for providing the catalyst that continues to re-kindle the desire of the men in our program to grow closer to their Father and to be real Christian men in the world.
