Gentlemen of the eparchy are invited to take part in a Men’s faith sharing group facilitated by Fr. Greg Faryna, and assisted by Alex Pankiw a seminarian at Holy Spirit Seminary. The group will focus on the call to holiness as presented in the Apostolic Exhortation Gaudete et Exsultate.  Don’t let the sound of that scare you! Pope Francis writes in a way that is down to earth and speaks to the heart.

Here is a quote by Pope Francis from this exhortation:

The Lord asks everything of us, and in return he offers us true life, the happiness for which we were created.  He wants us to be saints and not to settle for a bland and mediocre existence. 

These sessions we will explore what this “true life” might look like and discover how one can answer God’s call to holiness in this world in which we live.


When: Thursdays at 7:00 pm, Jan. 21 – March 25

1 – 1 ½ hours in length.

Where: online via ZOOM

Cost: $9 + GST to cover the study material.
