The Pious Union Men’s Group began in March 2016 with a simple invitation to the men of the Shrine of St Louis Patron of the Suffering and Dying, come join us for faith, fellowship and fraternity. From this simple invitation and by God’s Grace,
the men’s group has over 15 members. Recently the men’s group had six members attend the Man Event a Diocesan engagement for men.
A common theme among the men is that they feel closer to the other men at the pious Union today than they did a year ago. This is a big change in behavior as Catholic men tend to be loners. It was a goal of the men’s group to build a community of men and help them grow spiritually by engaging them where they are.
The Pious Union men’s group meets once a month for an hour and a half for faith, fellowship and fraternity. The meetings are usually the third or fourth Friday in a month at the Holy Family astoral Center. Membership into the Pious Union men’s group is open to all men that attend mass at the Shrine of St. Joseph.
