Attention Men: Brothers in Christ is Coming to a Parish Near You

Brothers in Christ is a men’s group focusing on prayer, discussions about our faith and leading men in fellowship to build up the body of Christ. 

The group was started last year by members Don Gould and Deacon Dan D’Amelio, of Saint John Paul II parish, and Michael Lopez, of Divine Mercy Parish, under the guidance of the Office of Faith Events for the Diocese of Norwich. 

The men’s group proved to be very successful, with online virtual discussions every second Tuesday of the month. Each month brought a new topic of discussion and interaction for the men attending online. Some of the topics covered included: “Men of Faith in a Secular World,” “Serving in the Military and Serving the Lord,” “Taking a Leap of Faith/Discipleship,” “Having a Conversation with God,” “Vocations beyond the Collar,” “A call to Service” and “Fatherhood.”

This year, beginning in September, the group has decided to combine its virtual meetings with in-person gatherings at parishes throughout the diocese, in order to lead more men in prayer and in discussions about their faith and what it means to be a brother in Christ in the world today. The intent of these gatherings is to foster a better prayer life and fellowship among men within a parish and the surrounding community. Fathers are encouraged to bring their adult sons, men are welcome to bring their male friends and experience the joy of brotherhood in Christ.

Next month, look for a list of parishes that we will be coming to, along with the dates of our online meetings and join us if you can. If you have a topic that you would like us to discuss or if you would like to find out more information about the group, contact Liza Roach at the Office of Faith Events lroach@norwichdiocese.net (860) 848-2237, ext. 305
