Men of the Cross

Men of the Cross - Mission Statement

Through fellowship our mission is to help men of our parish to enrich their Catholic faith and their walk with our Brother Jesus Christ.  Through this mission we will have a better connection with our Church, family, community and an unbreakable bond with our Brother Jesus Christ.

About us:

After our Men's Retreats and Conferences, it was discovered that there was a desire from some of those who attended to get together and continue what was started at these functions.  This is where the Men of the Cross were born.  We meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month in the Adult Education Building at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, with the rosary at 6:30pm and the meeting at 7pm.  Our meetings are designed to discuss Spiritual challenges men face in our everyday lives.  To pray for strength and perseverance, and to create an unbreakable bond with our Brother Jesus Christ.

The Men of the Cross would like to thank everyone involved with this year’s Good Friday Walk. A special thank you goes out to the 235 walkers, including Deacon John, and to everyone who gave a donation of any kind. A very special thank you also goes out to all of the volunteers who helped and especially to everyone who prayed for the success of the walk. We truly felt God’s presence on the journey and feel like many prayers were answered along the way.
