2022 Thank You

2022 Thank You

We did it!

How have you experienced journeying together as the Church?

By Sean Lynn of God Squad Canada 

We did it! We celebrated an in-person Men’s Conference in Canada, celebrating 25 years of Men’s Ministry for God Squad Canada. I can’t thank you enough for all the men that have shown up over the years to support us and those that joined us online and in-person. This year I’d especially like to thank our speakers Jeff Cavins, Brett Powell, and Bishop McGratton for making a memorable weekend. This doesn’t happen by accident, this happens with a lot of work behind the scenes by dedicated volunteers year in and year out. I get to be the smiling face at the podium but there is a dedicated team over the years that have helped pull off these conferences and this year is by no means any different. I would like to thank Lorand Szojka, Richard Beaulieu, Stephen Cross, Deacon Stephen Robinson, Fr. Jonathan Gibson, Stephen Kaip, John Paul, Joey Paul, Dave Cichon, and Peter van Uden. These are the men that help God Squad Canada move forward. In the last year, they have had us looking at it in more of a business light and moving us to the next level, I cannot thank them enough. I would like to also personally thank my loving wife, Michele and my eight children, who have been supporting me personally for the last 25 years to make these conferences happen. 

Stephen Cross, Jeff Cavins, Sean Lynn, Brett Powell, Lorand Sojka, Stephen Kaip, Richard Beaulieu

We were blessed to have Sisters Seeds Of The Word help service lunch this year and Beloved Daughters help serve coffee and donuts. I’d like to thank our sponsors the CMLA/Heroicmen for sponsoring Jeff Cavins, Spolumbo’s for sponsoring our lunch, and Mike Reid of Tim Hortons who sponsored our coffee muffins and donuts. 

I pray that you were all moved by the weekend talks which we are making available for you to watch and listen to and reflect on and maybe share with that man Jeff challenge you to bring into the church in the next five years. None of this happens by accident. We need your prayers and support as we continue to move forward under the guidance of Saint Joseph. Please consider four things; Are you willing to be a parish Ambassador or captain to help us promote God Squad and men’s ministry? Second; consider being a helping hand as we try to do more Outreach with a BBQ, disc golf, or painting the church in Brocket. Third; your prayers – we have prayers on our website where you can pray with us whether it’s a novena, rosary, or Terror of demons. Use prayers that speak to you. Then finally please consider a donation. Normally we ask at the conference for donations, which didn’t fit into the schedule this year as we were trying to keep it on time and on message. We still would like to raise money for the Litany of Saint Joseph and we would like to other Outreach possibilities. Considering sponsoring so we can serve dinner to CCO missionaries for free on April 2 or Bishop McNally High School retreat in May. I’d like to see what the possibility is of us hiring people to move it to the next level and bring this message across Calgary and Canada. Some of your companies will match your donations or volunteer hours so please consider helping us. Please email if you can help with any of these things. E-Transfers can be made to; please follow-up with an email with all your personal information for tax purposes.

Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support and prayers and attendance at this year’s conference and know that we will continue to move forward reaching men where they’re at and doing what we can to build the Kingdom of God.

Dear Brothers in Christ, 


I am writing this letter to give support to the work of God Squad Canada. God Squad has been carrying out its Apostolate for 25 years, and enjoyed the protection of their Patron, St Joseph

Through the guidance of St Joseph, God Squad’s vision is to form and strengthen men, inspiring them to embrace God’s vocation in their lives.


Their Mission is to positively encourage men amidst today’s darkness of spiritual famine and moral confusion; to challenge men to reverse the breakdown of families by serving and nurturing men of all ages to be leaders in their families and communities; and, to inspire men to show the same servant leadership to their families that Christ has for His bride, the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.


Some of God Squad’s beneficiaries have been seminarians, NET ministries, St. F.X. Chaplaincy, Catholic Christian Outreach, One Rock family conferences and the Calgary Lay Associations


The theme for God Squad’s 25th Anniversary Men’s Conference on March 18 and 19, 2022 is A Change on the Rise: Ushering In The New Springtime.  Change is on the rise.  “The mission of Christ the Redeemer, which is entrusted to the Church”, needs men willing to renew the mission and “proclaim the great works of God”  Springtime is not just about new life, it’s about hard work, getting your hands dirty and fending off the enemy.


As the Episcopal Advisor to God Squad Canada, I extend to all of you my apostolic blessing, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen



Bishop Scott Cal McCaig, C.C.
Bishop of the Roman Catholic
Military Diocese of Canada

Change is on the Rise:
Ushering The New Springtime 

Mario interviews Sean Lynn of God Squad Canada on the theme of its upcoming 25th Anniversary Men’s Conference.  Sean gives testimony on how 4 police officers started God Squad and how grateful he is for all the many volunteers over the years that made God Squad what it is today.  From Men’s Conferences, to BBQ Outreach, to motorcycle rides or disc golf, God Squad is about reaching out to young men, forming and strengthening men and to inspire them to embrace God’s vocation in their lives.

Sean says that this year’s theme was inspired by Avi Kaplan’s song “Change on the Rise” and St. John Paul II’s new springtime in his encyclical REDEMPTORIS MISSIO, long before the current political winds and discourse in the media. Inspired by reflection, Sean recognizes, as farmers do, that the springtime is a time of hard work.  As “we’re coming out of two years of struggle and strife we need to work hard at coming together and work for healing” and building up the Kingdom of God.

Sean is excited to announce our speakers and who will be presiding the opening Mass:  Jeff Cavins, Brett Powell and Bishop William McGrattan of the Diocese of Calgary.  

Undaunted by the pandemic, God Squad has been able, through the good graces and protection obtained from its patron Saint; Saint Joseph, to be able to host a men’s conference online at the St. Joseph’s Oratory, in the Year of St. Joseph, whilst it was closed.  This year, the Conference will be in person.  For those who are unable to attend physically, they can join the conference online.

“We understand that wherever you’re at, we want you to join, if it’s small groups across the country, get together and watch!  But you’re not going to get the Spolumbo’s [sausages] if you don’t show up.”

There’s room for 1,200 now as the restrictions have been lifted. “So come and help us celebrate our 25th Anniversary!”

God Squad’s 2022 Conference is being held at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Calgary on March 18 and 19, 2022.  Everyone registering will get a free copy of Chris Stefanik’s  “Rise A 30 – Day Challenge” that you can start on Feb 16 to be done in time for the Conference.

Also available from God Squad is a set of Disc Golf discs with a driver named Terror of Demons. Sean sees disc golf as an opportunity to bring families together or to strengthen mentor relationships with the men in your life.  

Please join God Squad on March 10, 2022, in honoring God in St. Joseph by joining them in the Novena to St Joseph.
