Who Should Visit St. Joseph’s Farm?
FATHERS & SONS
Do you, as a community of men, understand why so many boys remain immature and unfinished and what you can do about it? SJF hosts programs that layout the principles of a rite of passage and allow you, as a fathers, to ensure that your sons reach maturity and grow in virtue. The classes in homesteading and traditional crafts also provide a means of connection within the home.
Are you a part of or in the leadership of a men’s group or apostolate? Bring your team or the men you work with to SJF to recharge and gain greater clarity and vision for reviving and working with men.
Unsure what to study? Trying to find your purpose in life? Just need a break to connect with the natural order God created? Come spend time at the farm and place yourself in the reality of a working farm. Sweat, hard work, true leisure and fraternal community has a way of bringing out the best in a young man. The experiences range from weekend events, week long “work weeks” and limited long-term apprentices to assist on the farm.
The immaturity in our culture is effecting priestly formation as well. A man needs security and experience in his natural masculinity in order to discern and be formed in the supernatural masculinity of the priesthood and religious life.
Spaces are usually limited to 15-20 participants. Sign up to receive updates about SFJ in general, notices of upcoming programs, or to inquiry about bringing a group.
