From the Pastor’s Desk:
Iron Sharpens Iron: The King’s Men
There is a continual need to heed Our Lord’s call to conversion and holiness. Renewal is ongoing, and in the last several years it has been clear that authentic renewal often takes place within, what the Church calls “ecclesial movements.” God given desires have produced movements of dedicated men and women who, recognizing the challenges inherent in living the Gospel, have banded together to pray, to grow, and to work for the advancement of the Kingdom of God.
One of these movements specifically for men was founded by Mark Houck and Damian Wargo in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Both recognized their need for a group of Catholic men geared towards coming together regularly for formation and accountability to be strengthened in their roles as leader, protector, and provider. The name of the movement is “The King’s Men.”
The Mission of The King’s Men:
“Under Christ the King’s universal call to serve, we as men pledge to unite and build up men in the mold of leader, protector, and provider through education, formation, action, and healimg.
I am pleased to announce the formation of a chapter of The King’s Men here at Holy Trinity. Men ages 18 and older are encouraged to join the group which will meet the first and third Monday of every month from 8pm to 9:30 in Room 102.
Deacon Mark Friedlein, along with Howard Gault, Rick Walker, Gordon Shenkle, Ron Plues, and Alec MacDougall have graciously agreed to help organize and facilitate our King’s Men group. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Alec MacDougall at Alec_Mac@msn.com. Ladies, please encourage your husbands, sons, fathers, and brothers to attend… they’ll return better men.
God Bless You,
Fr. John Murphy, Pastor
