ParentTalks is an education program to further support our boys for a life dedicated to achievement, leadership, and service to the Church and community. Each ParentTALKS aims to identify an issue, educate on the theory or point of view, and give practical suggestions to assist and support parents. 

The TALKS help provide a forum for ideas and open discussions. In addition, the TALKS bring parents together to support each other in their sons’ journey to being Better Men.

Parents and guardians may attend the TALKS in-person and virtually to encourage participation. We encourage all parents to attend, ask questions and have discussions at home following the TALKS.

We are always open to hearing about possible presenters, topics of interest, and ideas for future ParentTALKS. Please feel free to send your recommendations to

This year's ParentTALKS coordinator is Michelle Petrusevich.
