Men's Prayer Group

Contact person: Dave Drahos, 772-8286

The Men's Prayer Group is an organization open to any male member of the parish. We meet every Wednesday morning for songs, prayer and fellowship. The group meets periodically for breakfast on Saturday morning for song, prayer, fellowship and a hearty breakfast along with a program for personal growth.

"Because the lay faithful belong to Christ, Lord and King of the Universe, they share in his kingly mission and are called by him to spread that kingdom in history. Since the work that awaits everyone in the vineyard of the Lord is so great, there is no place for idleness ."
- Pope John Paul II

As Catholic men, we're called to share the good news of Jesus Christ with our friends, family, and colleagues. Stepping out in faith, we can accept this holy challenge and make a difference for Christ. And in the new springtime of evangelization, we'll become nurturing pillars of faith in our families and communities. At OLPH we have weekly, bimonthly, and annual opportunities for spiritual growth, prayer, and fellowship to help equip us to fulfill this mission.

A small group of men meet at the church every Wednesday morning, 7:30 to 8:00 am, to sing, pray, and share fellowship. What a great way to start the day!

We have a men's breakfast approximately every two months. We enjoy good food and fellowship, followed by a speaker teaching us and leading us in different areas of personal and spiritual growth. These breakfasts take place on a Saturday, with our next three scheduled for January 5, March 2, and May 4.

Every year a group of men from both our parish and Our Lady of Nazareth parish look forward to going to the Catholic Men's Conference at Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio. It is the first weekend in June. We are inspired by an excellent series of talks and workshops from Friday evening through Sunday noon. The personal and spiritual growth we experience cause us to return year after year.
