Organizational vision. Emphasize male role responsibilities: husband; father; spiritual director; leader; single and unmarried male.
+ Living Catholic beliefs and practices based on Jesus, as model and mentor.
+ Enhance faith and spirituality via discussion and exploration with other Catholic men to form a deeper relationship with Jesus.
+ Treat women with respect, as a Lady deserves, as if the Blessed Mother is present, here and now.
+ To evangelize to other men in outreach programs, and especially to present the Catholic position when questioned, or challenged with incorrect information.
Values. Discern duties and responsibilities in male roles, and to enhance spirituality via scripture readings, prayer, discussions, and Mass attendance.
a. Attendance is open to males 18 years of age or older. Catholics, or those interested in learning about Catholicism.
b. Meet 1st & 3rd Saturdays of each month at Epiphany after the 8 am Mass.
c. There are no financial obligations. Perhaps, an occasional contribution to offset coffee and doughnut costs.
d. Major events may develop as outreach programs to other parishes, or venues as guest participants or leaders as requested or scheduled.
With your approval, maybe Trish can set aside a room in the rectory for the Faith for Men meeting. I think there will be between 3 to 7 in attendance, initially. Thank you, Father and God Bless! Jim Ryan.
