Strong and Free
Be Trained by St. Joseph
Lent is the time to step into the desert to do battle with the demons. To face the basic forces and facts in our life. To see what is and what isn’t, what matters and what doesn’t. It is a time of spare honesty. A time to reset. But as Christian men, we are not alone in the desert. Our Lord presents us with guides, trainers, coaches, leaders in our battle with evil and ourstruggle to grow in virtue. Chief among these holy guardians is St. Joseph, the man given the role of father for the Savior of the World. We need his guidance. With it, we can find the grace to grow in strength, in virtue, in self-possession, all for the sake of freely handing our lives over to the God who gives us victory.
There will be talks by Fr. Jonah Teller, O.P., Confession, Eucharistic Adoration, Mass, discussion, and fellowship.
