It’s been a year since our last Fishers of Men’s breakfast, as we met on March 14, 2020. It’s been much too long!
This Saturday we begin again, perhaps even anew. Certainly, the last couple of years have tested our spirits, our resolve, our resiliency. Perhaps we’ve looked more to our faith, to Jesus Christ for help and guidance. Perhaps not, maybe at times we were overcome with discouragement, even despair. That’s why our parish community is so important – none of us can do this alone. Our walk in faith is made far easier when we walk with our brothers.
For all of us it’s been at least a year since we gathered together at a Fishers of Men’s breakfast – celebrating food, friendship and faith. For some, perhaps it’s been even longer. No matter if you were with us when we last gathered, much longer than that, or never – what better time to commit to a band of brothers than this Lenten season. I challenge us all to make the commitment – knowing well that it’s not an easy one to make, let alone keep.
Joining Fishers of Men each month “puts us to the test” and is a great way to strengthen our faith, journeying with one another, each of us accountable to the other. Proverbs 27:17 reminds us: “Iron sharpens iron, one man sharpens another.” Not to mention, the discussion can be reflective, challenging, even demonstrative – sometimes all at the same time.
We enjoy what everyone brings to our group – and hope to see even more of you this Saturday. Feel free to invite a friend.
Breakfasts, same as before – food, discussion and prayer;
