Yesterday, on the Feast of the Archangels, at 3 PM, the Hour of Mercy, Bishop Olmsted released his Apostolic Exhortation to the Men of the Diocese entitled Into the Breach: An Apostolic Exhortation to Catholic Men. Brothers, I encourage you to read and share this important message.
Reverend Fredrick J. Adamson, V.G., Moderator of the Curia, for the Diocese of Phoenix says, “This Exhortation from the heart of our Bishop to the hearts of the priests, deacons, consecrated and lay men of the Diocese calls them to take up their role in the Spiritual Battle. It calls them to know their identity as men in Christ called to excellence, prayer and service. It calls them to love others, precisely as men, in the self-sacrificial way to which they are called. It calls them to follow the Lord Jesus Christ as men who are missionary disciples, as Pope Francis has been asking. It calls us to protect and guide those we love, particularly in families. Following the Holy Father’s visit for the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia last week and preceding the Synod on the Family in Rome next week, the timing of this Exhortation is providential.”
The document, along with a trailer video and resources, can be read in English and Spanish online at the following website: www.IntoTheBreach.net
With this promulgation of Into the Breach, we ask St. Michael, Prince of the Heavenly Host to be with us in battle, St. Gabriel, the Messenger of God, to help us carry the Good News of the Gospel to all.

The Tucson Chapter was founded in 1984 through the efforts of State Deputy Roger Schumaker. With the approval of the Board of Directors, the chapter name was changed to the Chief Judge John M. Roll Chapter in 2011. Judge John M. Roll was a victim of the shootings in Tucson on Jan 8, 2011. He was a member of Council 10441 and the Msgr. Don Hughes Assembly in Tucson.
The Chapter is comprised of Councils and Assemblies in the Tucson area from Green Valley to Marana. The Chapter serves the Arizona State Council and the councils of the Tucson area, raising funds for various projects.
