The Nativity Men 4 Him Group is a Fellowship of Catholic men proud to be Men of Faith. Unfortunately, some Catholic men, see Christianity and going to Mass and saying the Rosary as sissy stuff, or say “I just don’t have the time.” Our goal is to Love God, Love Others, Make Disciples for Christ and grow Spiritually as Brothers in Christ!  Typically, we meet once a week for an hour on Thursday mornings with a study leader for each session. Generally, most of us meet for the 9:00 Mass and have enough time to make a visit to the Rosary Walk for individual Prayer before our 9:45am meeting time. Our topics are generally issues of the day important to the Catholic Men of 2022 that enhance his Spiritual Life, Family Life and his Life Skills as Husband, Father and Grandfather. We hold each other accountable in our goal for Eternal Salvation for ourselves and all our loved ones.

If you have questions at all about our group, please call
Tom Vogel at 404 403-0935 or email [email protected].
We look forward to hearing from you.
