We are a groups of men from local parishes from all walks of life who meet every Friday to pray, study, and discuss books that help us understand and deepen our Catholic faith. We’ve met at St. Andrew for more than a decade – reading, discussing, and debating Catholic writings by popes, saints, and theologians in order to better understand our faith, and in turn to become better fathers, husbands, friends, and ministers to the community.


Open to all parish men


Friday Morning: This group convenes at 5:45 am on Friday mornings in the Church to recite the rosary followed by distribution of Holy Communion. The study group then begins at 6:30 am – 7:30 am, Meetings in the C.A.R.E. Center Room 214. In July, we begin our study of “Humility of Heart” by Fr. Cajetan da Bergamo.

Wednesday Night: This group convenes on Wednesdays beginning on August 31st  at 7:30PM in room 212 of the CARE Center. The group will be reading Matthew Kelly’s book, “The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic”.  In it, Kelly explains how incremental changes in the ways we approach prayer, study, generosity, and evangelization can pay huge dividends in our lives and the lives of those we love.
