Men of Saint Joseph

imagemenofsjThe Men of St. Joseph is open to men of all ages. However, it is critical to have a core of active men who are involved in their work, communities, and families. Ironically, because today’s men’s lives are so hectic, it is sometimes difficult to develop a deep relationship with God. The Men of St. Joseph should be comprised of regular, everyday Catholic men who are attempting to lead extraordinary spiritual lives.

Meetings are structured in a “prayer, read, discuss” format. The Catholic daily prayer book, The Magnificat, is followed as a guide for prayer by the group. The Gospel, usually for the coming Sunday, is then read, and an individual volunteer gives a presentation and interpretation of the reading. Group discussion of the Gospel, and how the word of God speaks to our daily lives, then follows. All are encouraged, though none are required, to participate in the discussion.

The Saint Augustine Chapter meets monthly in O’Brien Hall. Please contact the rectory for more information, or John Olobri at (401) 338-6534. More information is also available at
