What we do
Our weekly fellowship meetings are essential to the mission of this brotherhood which is to foster the spiritual growth of our members. The following outline is the customary format of our meetings. Meetings last around two hours.The meeting begins with the Order of Prayers including the Holy Rosary and Litany of Our Lady , examination on our rule of life, Sundays readings, reflection, group discussion and final prayer.
Last Tuesday of the Month
The spiritual and catechetical formation of our brothers is a priority of the brotherhood. Once a month (last Tuesday of the Month) the weekly meeting is dedicated to formation talks. Over the course of two years, the talks provide a basic knowledge of the Catholic faith and practical Christian living, doctrine which is firmly based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Father Robert McGowan Parochial Vicar (Associate Pastor) at Holy Innocents Catholic Church is leading the Formation talks.
Charity: Mass and Prayer outside FPA
Third Saturday of the Month
The brothers of each chapter organize works of charity. Some chapters are engaged in distributing food to the homeless, making God's love for them visible to the poorest of the poor. Others offer to lead novenas for the deceased, thus exercising a work of spiritual mercy, praying for the dead, and catechizing those who do not know God. Loving our neighbors as ourselves for the love of God, the Brotherhood at Holy Innocents dedicates every Third Saturday of the month to attend the 8am Mass and afterwards, head's down to the local FPA Abortion center as we gather and pray for the end of Abortion with three Rosaries and a Divine Mercy Chaplet. Charity is not only practiced outside the brotherhood, but within it as well. The brothers support each other in their spiritual and material needs.
