The group meets every 2nd Friday from 7:30pm in the hall for prayer, discussions and fellowship
The mission of the St John Fisher Catholic Men’s Group is to enable Catholic men to grow in and live the Catholic Faith as leaders in our family, parish, and wider society. We do this by meeting regularly for formation, fellowship, prayer, and action to support the Church’s mission on earth in ways appropriate to us as Catholic laymen. Our meetings always include Eucharistic adoration, together with a variety of activities including guest speakers, retreats, dinners and pub trips, hikes, pilgrimages, discussions, pro-life work, joint events with other men’s groups, and volunteering our time and skills. If you would like to know more and come along, email stjohnfishercmg[at]outlook[dot]com .
