Men’s Fellowship Groups

“He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers.” (Malachi 4:6)

What does it mean to be a faith-filled and faithful man of God?

A man needs to understand that he has a vocation, because of his baptism…a mission from God.  He needs a calling and a vision. The outreaches and programs at St. Paul help Catholic men build upon that instinct in a positive way.

Men also need support from other men and mentors to become good husbands and fathers. Men’s Bible studies and fellowship groups provide a non-threatening, supportive, and prayerful context for the emotional and spiritual support men need, but usually won’t ask for on a personal level.

Women’s Fellowship Groups

“The Church is constantly enriched by the witness of the many women who fulfill their vocation to holiness. Holy women are an incarnation of the feminine ideal; they are also a model for all Christians, a model of the ‘sequela Christi,’ an example of how the Bride must respond with love to the love of the Bridegroom.” (Mulieris Dignitatem (On the Dignity and Vocation of Women), #27)

How can Catholic women fulfill their ‘vocation to holiness’?

A woman who seeks to grow in holiness will often discover many callings during the seasons of her life. She may be single, married, widowed, or in religious life. She may work full-time outside the home or be a ‘domestic engineer.’ She may be both a wife and/or mother. Often, she may feel challenged by the many responsibilities in these roles or callings.

Women’s fellowship groups at St. Paul can nourish the deep spiritual and social needs of women, so that they can continue to be a witness of Christ to all those they serve and encounter.
