The St. Francis Men’s Ministry was created to offer men the opportunity to minister to one another in the spirit of Christ. The cornerstone of the Ministry is the monthly breakfast meetings that provide a frequent way for men to come together in prayer and fellowship. The Men’s Ministry provides a safe haven for men to meet other Christian men for friendship, advice, the sharing of our journey through life, and a smooth transition for involvement in other activities with the St. Francis Community.
Each month we send out a newsletter reminding you of what’s coming up in our ministry and around the community. Using the form below, select the group “Men’s Ministry” to sign up and receive this newsletter!
The Men’s Ministry meets for breakfast in the Community Center from 7:00 – 8:00 am on the first Monday of the month throughout the year to grow in faith as brothers in Christ.
Our upcoming meetings will be held on:
2016: October 3, November 7, December 5
2017: January 9 (Due to New Year’s Holiday), February 6, March 6, April 3, May 1, June 5
Drawing on the main theme of the Year of Mercy, the purpose of the Men’s Ministry is for men of our parish to grow in faith, offer opportunity to develop friendships and help each other work through common experiences. As in most retreats, you are taken away from the busyness and stress of everyday life, reconnect with God, and be strengthened for your family life and work when you get back home. This year’s retreat will be held at the renowned St. Francis Springs Prayer Center, just north of Burlington, NC.
At the recommendation of Fr. Steve Kluge, OFM, we are excited to announce that our retreat leader will be Br. Henry Fulmer, OFM. Br. Henry is a pastoral associate at St. Francis of Assisi in Triangle, VA.
The retreat begins with an opening presentation after dinner on Friday, November 11, and ends with Mass and lunch on Sunday, November 13th. Registration is $200 per participant, and is available online by clicking below. All registrations are double occupancy, and include 6 meals (Friday dinner to Sunday lunch), presentations, and small group conversations.
