Fall Session:
Thy Kingdom Come

St Joan of Arc Catholic Church offers Catholic and non-Catholic men a program where men can talk to each other about the challenges that they face, including those from the secular world.  Men of all ages and stages of life are welcome to listen and to share thoughts at our Iron Sharpens Iron Men’s Ministry program.

We meet almost every Saturday morning in the social hall from 6:30-8 a.m. and provide breakfast. Alternatively, we meet on Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30 p.m. You may choose either one. Some men’s leadership programs that we have studied are the following:

That Man Is You

Honor Begins At Home


Theology of the Body

Rediscovering Catholicism

Joy Of the Gospel

The Mass

The Bible and Virgin Mary

The Bible and Our Sacraments


Impromptu “Coffee Shop Talk” where two or more are gathered together


Our Iron Sharpens Iron Men’s Ministry would like to personally invite you to join other men at St. Joan of Arc in our faith and fellowship enriching programs.

St Joan of Arc offers many other fellowship opportunities available to everyone; many of which are listed in our weekly Sunday bulletin. For more information about any of these, contact our parish office at (614) 761-0905.
