There are a number of existing parish-based men’s groups in the Archdiocese, in which men come together to pray, study the faith, and support each other. We hope to encourage more of these, convinced that men need other men, brothers with whom they can grow in their faith, find mutual encouragement, and develop Christ-centred friendships. See below for a directory of existing groups, plus a list of recommended resources.
