Dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Who are we? The Short version
A small group of Catholic Men who meet once a month to talk about their faith.
How does it work?
Some prayer. A bit of organisational business. A meditation and a discussion on a particular topic.
Each year there is a nationally worked out topic - this year Spirituality in the world of today. Issues
considered include the place of the Mass in our lives, the family, modern science's impact on
procreation, the family, the dignity of mankind, human spirituality.
Who is welcome?
Anyone who wants to talk about their beliefs and the challenges of living up to their faith in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
