Into the Breach: An Apostolic Exhortation to Catholic Men



Into the Breach is a call to battle for Catholic men which urges them to embrace wholeheartedly masculine virtues in a world in crisis.


In 2015, Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted issued a challenge to the men of his diocese — to step into the breach. His exhortation, Into the Breach: An Apostolic Exhortation to Catholic Men, identifies the crisis of faith facing the Church today and presents a vision of the role of Catholic men in combating it.


Inspired by Bishop Olmsted’s vision, the Knights of Columbus and the Diocese of Phoenix have joined together to produce a 12-episode video series, also titled Into the Breach.


Each episode focuses on a different aspect of authentic Catholic masculinity and features interviews with well-known Catholic commentators and follows the personal story of a man whose life illuminates each theme.


By joining together in brotherhood, men receive the support they need to grow in virtue and to take action to serve Christ and others. We hope that this series will help you and all of us to step into the breach.
