About KingsMen

Superficial friendships and sofa sitting

Our Western society is characterized by an ever-increasing passivity of large groups of men. Men of today often have difficulty dealing with the growing self-awareness of women and therefore crawl back into their own world. This passivity starts with lounging on the sofa in front of the TV or PC and often ends in complicated addiction problems, difficult relationships, being overworked and in very superficial friendships.

Mission

KingsMen is a men’s movement based on Catholic principles. The movement seeks to make men aware of their “being a man” and their role in life, family and society by organizing activities that “wake up” men and bring them back to the essence of being a man. KingsMen challenges you to step out of your comfort zone.
