ABOUT US

The Men’s Club mission is to promote unity among the men of St. Paul of the Cross. If you are a St. Paul of the Cross parishioner and over the age of 21, you qualify. It’s a great way to get involved, socialize, network, drink Malort and have fun. We have meetings, meetups, and social events throughout the year.

The Men’s Club and their sponsors and supports programs such as the SPC food pantry, Roundball Basketball Tournament, and Rising Star Scholarship.

Directors

 Joe

Joe

President

St. Paul's very own idiot savant. Mostly an idiot, not so much a savant. Will his return engagement be a tour de force or a tour de farce? Played the clarinet in the school band. Stay tuned. ****Malort Club Member****

 Mike Meyer

Mike Meyer

VP/Social Director

Local sawbones is a handsome man, and he likes his beer. Proudly displays above his home brew bar a picture of himself in his short­shorts, powder blue, ND high school basketball uniform. What was he thinking? Nobody knows.

 Joe Haugh

Joe Haugh

VP/Social Director

Bank magnate and, sad to say, friend of Meyer. Unbeknownst to his banking industry brethren, he is a charter member of the Chris Dodd­Barney Frank fan club. Loves to throw the dice with OPM.

 Ron Niego

Ron Niego

Social Director

This new addition to the MC team was last seen stumbling out of The Lodge on Rush Street at 3:30 am after a Hawks game outing. Claims that he would have been fine but for his overconsumption of Purple Drank. Ron is a fireman and enjoys rescuing cats from trees and swings a mean ax.

 PJ Naughton

PJ Naughton

Marketing Director

Internet marketing wunderkind who was conned into returning to the Men's Club team when Capitani made him an offer he could not refuse (or understand as, shockingly, Capitani was in his cups at the time). Blames his partner for his 3-second place bags tourney finishes to the Sweeney/Gibbons team.

 Bob Wolfe

Bob Wolfe

Director at Large

This advertising executive is responsible for all those billboards along the Kennedy expressway that litter the Chicago skyline. Blames his partner for his 3-second place bags tourney finishes to the Sweeney/Gibbons team.

 Randy “No” Bull

Randy “No” Bull

Treasurer

Long time Men's Club Treasurer can toss down drinks when he is in the mood. Which, unfortunately for his liver, is often. He is the son of former Chicago Bear legend Ronnie Bull but was not born with his dad’s athletic skills. Favorite number is 29. ****Malort Club Member****

 John Meyers

John Meyers

Recording Secretary

Ravinia habitué was seen in the VIP section at the Chic concert earlier this month. Recently overheard complaining to the owner of the Harpoon and Fiddle that the juke box had no selections from either Air Supply or Lionel Richie. Was given das boot from the establishment by members of his own family. ****Malort Club Member****

 Kevin Doyle

Kevin Doyle

Service Director

Little is known about this affable gent. He has appeared, Zelig­like, in every MC administration, often in close proximity to the beer truck. A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

 Mark Miller

Mark Miller

Spiritual Director

Head usher, heavy metal aficionado and air guitarist extraordinaire. Recently admonished by Father Britto when he was discovered putting up posters of Ozzy Osbourne in the church confessionals.

 Steve Bachert

Steve Bachert

Donations Director

Tech industry titan known for his fastidious ways. Prone to Tourette's­like outbursts of corporatese (see, Urban Dictionary) when under the influence of John Barleycorn.

 Tim Bresnahan

Tim Bresnahan

Sergeant At Arms

This former Golden Gloves boxer will be the Men's Club enforcer. His primary mission will be to part those MC members who have short arms and deep pockets from their vast reserves of wealth. Moose! Rocco! Help the judge find his wallet!!

 Dan Koziol

Dan Koziol

Director at Large

Super nice guy who loves the MC and cannot golf to save his life. Vows to break 100 at this year's golf outing. On the front nine.

 Glenn Lombardi

Glenn Lombardi

Director at Large

Former MC President is a serial entrepreneur and business visionary whose most secret desire is to re­take the helm of the MC. Huge Bernie Sanders supporter. Glenn's grandfather was a coach for the Green Bay Packers. ****Malort Club Member****

 Pete Fernandez

Pete Fernandez

Director at Large

Enthusiastic young MC member and truly awful bocce player. Thinks the pallino is a type of Hungarian liqueur.

 Chris Poindexter

Chris Poindexter

Director at Large

Former MC President and fixture on the St. Paul campus. Widely believed to maintain living quarters in either the Kinane Center or Duffin Hall. Chris knows his way around a BBQ grill and loves to ride on donkeys.

 Roger Shubert

Roger Shubert

Director at Large

A quietly intense local politician with Machiavellian tendencies. Thought to be testing the waters for higher office. Total pipe dreamer and die hard Cub's fan.

 Tom Schenfeld

Tom Schenfeld

Director at Large

Bank regulator and avid concert­goer who knows when to take a pass. Recently declined an invitation from Meyers to attend the Mariah Carey concert. Tom is a former president of the Barry Manilow fan club.

 Larry Howard

Larry Howard

Director at Large

This title company behemoth is a sharp dresser who likes to party. Hung out on Rush Street back in the day. Recently seen at Cheers on Oakton Street chatting up a bar stool. Bizarre. Only know De La Salle graduate and former Bridgeport resident to ever live in Park Ridge. Favorite bar is still Schaller's Pump.

 Bill Armstrong

Bill Armstrong

Director at Large

Print industry executive whose maiden name is Anderson. Rode his bicycle into Murphy Lake (aka Murphy Pond) whilst attempting to return home after consuming the better part of a keg at the bags tournament. Almost crashed his car outside Wrigley Field while searching for a McDonalds’s cheeseburger.

 Gene Cooney

Gene Cooney

Director at Large

Funeral home director, magician, radio personality and scourge of women everywhere who are over the age of 65. This former denizen of The Chambers on Milwaukee Avenue currently haunts The Mecca in Edison Park. Amaetur comedian that puts the fun in funeral. Claims business is dead.

 John Nesbitt

John Nesbitt

Director at Large

This print industry pioneer is always ready to lend a hand. Once suggested, in a nod to the origins of golf, that MC members be required to wear kilts at the golf outing. Quickly retracted the suggestion when informed that a number of MC members (you know who you are) routinely "go commando."

 Dan Johnston

Dan Johnston

Director at Large

Outgoing MC President and local gadfly. Second only to Poindexter in time spent on the St. Paul campus.

 Ray Novak

Ray Novak

Director at Large

Senior board member, former CIA operative and black belt in Aikido. Will support Bresnahan's enforcement efforts. Tougher than he looks.

 Alex Jasinowski

Alex Jasinowski

Director at Large

Baby­faced MC veteran known for his quick wit and acerbic tongue. Was recently ejected from the PR library for heckling a life­sized cardboard cut­out of Hillary Clinton.
