Strengthen Your Brother

 

Members of Strengthen Your Brother gather on a Saturday morning to honor Tom Schiller on his upcoming ordination as a permanent deacon serving the Archdiocese of St. Louis.

 

 

 

 

Strengthen Your Brother (SYB) was launched at Seven Holy Founders in September 2011 with one purpose  - to provide a place for men of all ages to share and support each other in their faith journey

Strengthen Your Brother "…but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you,
when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers." (Luke 22:32) These are Jesus' loving words that have been embraced by this group of men in our parish community. SYB seeks to promote men's faith lives through prayer and fellowship. They meet for an hour every other Saturday morning at 7am in the Parish Center. SYB tries to find ways to make faith FUN and are committed to helping each other cross the finish line. They once helped a new Priest from Uganda plant a coffee plantation. Ask them why the "Two
Charcoal Fires" scripture story means so much to them!
Any man is eligible and encouraged to join this vibrant brotherhood by attending a meeting. 

Regular participants range in age from men in their 20’s to men in their 90’s.

No one is ever expected to talk, but everyone is welcome to speak as they are comfortable.

Men are invited to come whenever they can.  No attendance is taken and ALL ARE ALWAYS welcome.

The name Strengthen Your Brother comes from Jesus’ statement to St Peter “...but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” - Luke 22:32
