Duty Calls.

We are all called to greatness. It’s time we answer that call, and not for our own sake - but for our children, our wives, our families, our friends, our community, our country, and our Church.

What is Summons?

Summons is a monthly print publication by Be the Men. It’s simple and clear cut both in its style and its writing. Each issue has about 5-10 articles, written by every day Catholics just like you. Articles cover topics such as virtues, the Saints, current events, the sacraments, and more – bringing it all into the here and now for Catholic men.

Summons is printed and shipped directly to your mailbox each month. You can sign up to receive your copy for free each month by clicking the button below.
