OUR PATRON SAINT
St. Jerome is our patron saint. We strive to study, learn and develop a devotion to Sacred Scripture. As one of the greatest scripture scholars and theologians, St. Jerome is our inspiration.
The church calls St. Jerome the "greatest of the church Doctors!"
St. Jerome, Pray for us!
"IRON SHARPENS IRON, SO ONE MAN SHARPENS ANOTHER" ~ Proverbs 27:17
Ferrum Fratres began in the fall of 2016 by some local catholic men who wanted their sons to grow in their knowledge and love of scripture.
Have you ever started reading the bible and found it frustrating? The bible is God's story to us about Himself. Within the pages, we learn about who God is and who we are through His Son, Jesus. God has a plan for each of us and through learning His Word we can start to understand that plan. With a group bible study, we can learn about scripture, pray together and have fun together! We welcome you son to join our group!
WHAT WE DO
The Ferrum Fratres will generally meet once a month from September through May for bible study, prayer, games, treats and fellowship. There will be a FF family Holy Hour at the start of Advent and Lent. This will be led by our high school leaders.
In the spring we will have some type of adventure to encounter our Lord. Past adventures included a day trip to St. Gregory the Great seminary; an "Israelite Walk" where we carried the Ark of the Covenant to the Promised Land (a six mile walk down dirt roads to St. Michael's church) where we ended with Mass; a day trip to Our Lady of Guadalupe seminary; and a Pilgrimage to the Holy Family Shrine/Cloisters on the Platte.
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel. It is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes."
