MEN4HIM


Nativity Catholic MEN4HIM is a group of men proud to be Catholic men of faith. Too often Catholic men, today, see Christianity and “going to Mass as saying the Rosary as sissy stuff, or “I just don’t have time.” Our goal is to Love God, Love Others, make disciples for Christ and grow as brothers in Christ Typically, we meet once a week for an hour on Thursday morning with a study leader for each session. Generally, most of us meet for the 9:00 Mass with enough time to make a visit to the Rosary Walk for individual Prayer and Meditation. Our topics are generally topics of the day important to The Catholic men of 2019 that help his Spiritual Life, Family Life, and further his life skills as parent, husband and grandparent. We hold each other accountable in our goal for Eternal Salvation In ways that I did not imagine possible when we started.

Sewing

We have made covers for the statues in the church and purple swags to be used during Lent. We’ve done some alterations on altar cloths and repairs on the seminarian’s clothes.  

Father Jerry would like us to make banners for the sides of the altar for the liturgical seasons.

Currently we only have 4 members in our group and none of us have the skills and machines to do this type of work. 

I suggested to our group that we could make walker or wheelchair caddies or adult bibs for a local nursing home or our Homebound parishioners. One lady and myself are interested in this. One of our neighbors volunteers at the memory care unit in Spring Hill. They would love caddies and/or adult bibs. 

We have been meeting every other week in the morning. We are flexible with days and times.

Supper Club

The Supper Club is a group of parishioners who go out to dinner at a restaurant once a month.  To join us, you just send me an email (this way I have the person's email address) or phone me or come talk with me at church.  I send out an email to each person or couple every month, a few weeks in advance, telling them the name, address and telephone number of the restaurant and the time we will meet there. We welcome suggestions for restaurants and would love a confirmation email so we can make reservations.
