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.
