What is the Men’s Group?
Saint Catherine’s Men’s Group members deepen their spirituality, enjoy fellowship and serve others in need within our parish and in the wider community. We meet monthly (second Saturday) for prayer, reflection on a Bible passage, breakfast, and a presentation on a spiritual topic by a member or a guest. Each February we sponsor a Valentine’s Day breakfast. We also support various parish events; perform maintenance tasks; help with moving parishioners; do yard work for the elders of the parish; donate money for special projects such as renewal of the rectory windows, and take part in prison ministry.
Beyond Newman we provide financial support for a children’s hospital in Zimbabwe; a woman’s shelter in Thailand; a children’s center and a girl’s hostel in Namibia; and education of poor children in Guatemala and India. Our funds come from parking revenues and members’ donations.
Men’s group is based on 4 principles:
- Growing spiritually
- Service/Mission work
- Reaching out to others
- Promoting Fellowship
We have been in existence for 6 years. We do not have dues and 100% of our funds come from parking cars or donations. Over the past 6 years, we have funded many service projects. 35% has been given back to Newman community and another 20% is given to causes in the Salt Lake Valley.
We meet the 2nd Saturday of every month in the gathering space. We typically begin at 9:00 AM. with breakfast, Scripture reading, a short business update, and end with a speaker. Finished by 11:00 AM.
