Men's Spirituality Programs

with Jay Bowes and Lee Chamberlain

Where do men go to talk about those aspects of their lives that really matter — their values, purpose in life, relationships, their spirituality?

In an atmosphere of trust, acceptance, confidentiality and prayer, small groups of men meet on a biweekly basis to provide that forum and support for each other. Three groups meet biweekly and are open to men of all faiths. The commitment is for the entire semester of 10 meetings; the fee of $215 includes both the program and breakfast.

There are three groups — The Sunrise Group which meets on Tuesdays, Breakfast Club on Wednesdays and Peer Group on Thursdays. The groups start on September 10, 4 and 12 respectively. Each meeting runs from 7-9 a.m. and includes breakfast.

If you’re interested, please arrange to talk with one of the group facilitators about the programs before registering. To make that arrangement, contact Rosemary Jones at 203.245.0401, ext. 114.
