New Mens Group

Leave a comment

We are starting a new mens group here in Freeport. St Joseph Church will be hosting the new group on the first and third Wednsdays of the month. They will officially begin at 7pm, but the doors will be open by 6:30pm. It is a time for men in the community to support each other in the issues that men face today. …

We will start in the Church building with Fr Barr giving talks on issues men go through, there will be a short break and then discussion and sharing in the garage. We will finish with praying for each other and offer petitions in general. It will be an hour and a half long. There may be special occasions when we will have adoration and confessions available a well.

If you just need to get out of the house, need some support or just need to be around good men, come to these group nights. No requirents. No additional resposibilities. Just bring yourself. Do not need to be Catholic.

We are two Catholic Churches close to downtown Freeport, IL. Our communities are over 150 years old and have been dedicated to our lord Jesus Christ since our inception. We believe in God the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was concieved by the Holy Spirit, born of ythe Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
