Is * Indefinetely Postponed *
Come enjoy our breakfast presentation! Deacon Tom Stauffacher will be presenting a talk titled “Holy Orders...What's up with that?...a Deacon's View”. Knowing Deacon Tom, this promises to be both informative and enjoyable. Take the opportunity to hear and apply his perceptions and experience to your own calling as a disciple. There will be breakfast, fellowship and music to fill out the morning.
As always, all men from teen to senior are invited to participate. Sign up today. See you there.
Men's Nights / Saturday Breakfasts
Your input for what you would like to do for future programs is invited. Use our feedback line to let us know what you would like to see at a future gathering. There are video programs that lead to discussion. There are other speakers we could invite. There are directed studies or even prayer and worship. And, of course, we'll have food.
There are three quarterly events planned over the course of the year, two Men's Nights and one Saturday Morning Breakfast. The last quarter we will have the Annual Saturday Conference.
What would you like to have offered to the men of the parish to help live, understand or share our faith as 'the beloved men of Jesus' at St John the Evangelist? Let us hear from you.
Information on event specifics will follow through Bulletin, Parish App and this website. Check back again soon.
Each year several men's conferences are presented in Central Florida. The Diocese of Orlando puts on the "Rise UP" event, usually held in Spring at Holy Family in Dr Phillips featuring big name speakers. Locally we have a Fall Live4More Conference available to the Southern Deanery of the Orlando Diocese. The 2019 conference will be held at Holy Name in Indialantic. In 2020 the conference will be held at St John the Evangelist in Viera. In both years it is sponsored jointly by SJE and HNJ. Watch for all of the conference announcements in Spring and Fall.
We have begun facilitating and promoting annual retreats at Our Lady of Florida Spiritual Center in North Palm Beach. The facility consists of a community of Passionist priests, brothers and associates as well as the retreat center, located between US1 and the intercoastal waterway. Annual retreats and programs are available for men, women, married, clergy and special events. Registration and communication are maintained through the center itself. Online Web access is available for information and registrations.
Christ Renews His Parish Renewal Weekends
We highly recommend the CHRP weekends for in-parish spiritual renewal, fellowship, support and facilitating becoming an active parish member. Men's Discipleship ministry is not directly connected with the CHRP mininstry so please contact George Franzen and his team for additional information.
