The mission of the F.A.T.H.E.R.S. Team: Men Supporting Men; Growing in Faith and Fatherhood. The IHM Fathers Team offers practical help, fellowship, and support to men who are striving to be consistently better fathers and husbands. We encourage men to build their capacity to be devoted spiritual leaders for their family and to grow closer in their relationship to God, our Almighty Father. The Fathers Team builds men renewed with faith, hope and love through confidential sharing of practical experience, mutual accountability, guidance of our Christian faith, and fun. This group meets every Friday at 6:03 AM in the St. Matthew Room of the Parish Welcome Center.

The Knights are Catholic Men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church.
Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while growing in your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life.
Our local council, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Council #12359, has been part of the IHM family since the Council's founding in January, 1999. Now numbering over 100 members, the Bernardin Council is proud to be a vibrant part of the IHM parish community, sponsoring regular activities like our monthly Parish Breakfast (3rd Sunday of every month), annual Soccer Challenge and Free Throw Challenge for grade-school-aged young people, semi-annual Blood Drives, and our annual "Measure Up" collection for developmental challenged citizens. Local Knights are deeply involved in parish life, and can be found involved in many ministries throughout the parish.
Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Council #12359 meets the third Tuesday of each month in Heritage Hall. Meetings are open to member Knights only, and begin with recitation of the rosary at 7:15 p.m., with a business meeting following at 7:30 p.m.
