Men’s Ministry

The Fight of Faith

This fall, St. Michael’s Men’s Ministry is offering That Man is You: The Fight of Faith.

From “The Fight of Faith equips and enables men to engage in the cosmic, spiritual battle raging in our day. Authentic masculine identities will emerge to inspire heroic lives of service to a calling greater than ourselves. The Fight of Faith is uniquely both contemplative and practical.”

  • An intimacy with the Father as his beloved sons and heirs to the kingdom
