What Is the Men’s Club?
FAITH – We live our lives as Disciples of Christ and stewards of the grace and talents He has given us. That is why the men of Holy Family Parish enjoy hosting Parish events. These events have raised over $4,000 annually for the benefit of the Parish, and our school.
FAMILY – We do not forget that the parish is named for the Holy Family. We emphasize family in our work. As you can see in the activities list, we define family to include our individual families, our parish family and our Jacksonville community.
FELLOWSHIP – We enjoy the friendships we develop with the other members of the Men’s Club. Our meetings include a 30-minute social period, a healthy meal prepared for the membership, and the business meeting. Our events are designed to encourage members to interact with each other and the parish we serve.
SERVICE – We perform service to our parish and the Jacksonville community. Many members of the club hold leadership positions within the ministries of our parish and in charitable agencies throughout Northeast Florida.
