The men’s group Knights of the Immaculata will host a morning reflection for Catholic husbands and fathers titled “The Call to Fatherly Greatness” Saturday, April 27 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at St. Colman Church, 105 Argyle Road, Ardmore.
The day will include Mass celebrated by Father Jeffrey M. Rott, parochial vicar at St. Simon and Jude Parish in West Chester; a talk by guest speaker Devin Schadt; and a question-and-answer period followed by lunch.
Schadt will address husbands, fathers and grandfathers with important questions such as: What lessons can be drawn from the fatherhood of St. Joseph? What are the basic elements of an authentic life of faith for a husband and father, and how are we called to live them? What specifically does God expect from fathers?
Schadt is the founder of St. Louis Creative, co-founder of Fathers of St. Joseph, and author of “Joseph’s Way: The Call to Fatherly Greatness.” He lives in Davenport, Iowa, with his wife and five children.
Contribution for the reflection is $20 per person.
