St. Elizabeth Roman Catholic Church Men’s Fraternal
Men’s ministry across Jamaica is geared towards bringing males closer to Christ. The ST. Elizabeth’s Men’s Fraternal is no different. We believe that it is necessary to provide opportunities for men to interact with one another, both on a social basis and also on a spiritual basis. In Proverbs 27: 17 we are told. “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”
Our desire is to bring men to new life in Christ, grow men in spiritual maturity, and equip men to serve others to impact their world through Christ. A natural result of this is spiritually stronger men, husbands, fathers, families and churches.
The Men’s Fraternal of ST. E’z participate in activities designed for fun and fellowship men’s Eucharistic celebrant (mass), outings, fishing expeditions, men’s retreats and are some of our activities.
We convene on Sundays after mass to discuss issues that affect our parish as
we aim on providing service to the fullest, in order to continue building the ST.
Elizabeth’s church community. Each member is required to pay dues of $300 per month, and you are considered active member after three consecutive meeting. As such, ones membership will be questioned after three consecutive absences without a valid reason.
We implore members of the St. Elizabeth’s church community to be apart of this life changing experience as we embark on building a sound Catholic church community. Make a choice, make the right choice and become a member. Our gate is always open.
Our current president is Mr. Christopher Coke.
