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.
