The Saints Joseph and Francis Xavier Men’s Club provides an outlet for our 3 pillars – service, spiritual growth and social engagement – for the men of the parish. Members participate in the life of the church, support the projects and ministries of the parish, and provide physical, intellectual, spiritual and financial resources when and where they are needed. The organization seeks to support and encourage men of the parish to become authentic Disciples of Christ.
Every adult man in the parish is welcome! Whether you’ve just joined the parish or have been here for decades, whether you have kids or don’t, we encourage you to attend our next meeting.
Please read on for more information or feel free to contact us.
If you would like to be included in Men's Club events and communications, please register as a member through this form.
Meeting and Activity Schedule
We will meet monthly to socialize as a group, review activities related to our 3 pillars, and discuss opportunities to engage in the coming month. Meetings will be held on the first Wednesday of each month at 8pm in the basement of the convent on St. Joseph’s campus.
We hope to be launching a calendar of events that will be published here as we build initial membership.
The Service Committee organizes and oversees all events and ongoing activities expressing the service mission of the Men’s Club (e.g., sharing parish activities, parish service projects). It will Organize, promote and execute one major service project each year. This committee also provides manpower to support all Men’s Club activities and to the parish at large.
The Spiritual Committee organizes and oversees all events and ongoing activities expressing the spiritual mission of the Men’s Club (e.g., retreats, prayer groups, spiritual outings, spiritual reflections). Men in this committee are interested in challenging and supporting each other in personal spiritual growth and formation.
