Men’s Group

“God has assigned to every man the dignity of every woman”
– Pope John Paul II

The mission of our Saturday morning Men’s Group at St. Andrew Apostle is to meet men where they are in their journey of faith and to foster in them a deeper desire to understand how a devotion to serve God and your fellow man can be fulfilled not only in Church, but in the home and in your vocation.

If you feel the Lord is calling you grow in your faith and to be an authentic man rooted in the love of the Father, join us Saturday mornings between 7:30 and 8:45 in the multipurpose room. We start with coffee and donuts, followed by prayer, a short reflection by Fr. Dan, and discussion of the Sunday readings. The meeting wraps up in time for 9 a.m. Mass (confession is available after Mass). All men seeking the Truth are invited to attend.

The Men’s Group meets periodically for cookouts and steak dinners, as well as excursions and volunteer activities.

Email Mike Lewis at for more information and to join our email list.

Special Prayer Request (UPDATE):
Last week, I asked you to please keep Charlie Burnham and his wife Julia in your prayers, as they underwent kidney transplant surgery. Charlie was the donor, Julia was the recipient of his kidney.
He texted me last night to report that the surgery was a success.
Recovery will take some time but the kidney came to life immediately. Great news.
