Calling All Men!

The Men of St. Joseph Catholic Men’s Retreat

We are Called to be Men!

Saturday, October 20, 2018
St. Christopher Church, Emmaus Center
435 E. National Rd, Vandalia, OH 45377
Registration 8:00am – 9:00am Retreat 9:00am – 4:00pm

We live in a world that tries to define the role of the man. Whether you are a
father, brother, or son, our roles in our families has already been designed by God.

Do we know what those roles are? What is God truly calling us to be?

Keynote Speakers:

Father John Tonkin  Being a man of  God in the Family   //    Father Ethan Moore  How do Men Pray?

It’s a struggle to balance being a father, bread winner, businessman, coach, friend, husband and spiritual leader of your family. With each other’s support and shared accountability, it becomes a little easier. If we surrender our day-to-day problems to God we will be better fathers, husbands and friends. Through Christ, we will be better men. We welcome you to join us on this journey!

Cost $20 per person

Your fee includes: Retreat Costs, Breakfast and Lunch, Refreshments and Group Photo



The St. Christopher’s Men of St. Joseph’s group meets every Saturday morning from 7:30–9:00 a.m. (or a bit later) at Panera Bread on Miller Lane. We are a group of Catholic guys from St. Christopher dedicated to being the spiritual leaders of our families while becoming the best versions of ourselves.
Join us in fellowship as we pray, read the Gospel, reflect on it, and talk about what is going on in each other’s lives.
