We Invite You to Join Us
Men's F.I.R.E. Retreat 2023
Save Feb 11 - 12, 2023 for the Men's F.I.R.E. Retreat at Prairie Star Ranch
Men from 34 parishes across the metropolitan Kansas City area joined us last year for the F.I.R.E. Ministries Catholic retreat at Prairie Star Ranch. Outdoors. Fires. Fireworks. Small group discussions with men facing the same challenges that you do. Good food. Mass. Inspiration. Friendship. Of our roughly 120 participants last year, more than 70 men attended for the first time. The retreat presenters are volunteers - just guys - who attended the retreat in the past and now volunteer their time to organize a meaningful and purposeful event for you. Guys of all ages join us. Some do not currently attend church and are seeking their path forward. About 14% of last year's participants were under 30 years old and 35% were 55 or older. That means most of the guys are in the middle of balancing relationships, and family and careers, trying to figure out how to be purposeful and faithful in daily living.
So What Did Guys from Last Think?
We asked last year's participants to rate their retreat experience. Almost half responded to our survey. Many men accepted our invitation for the first time last year. Most responded that the retreat exceeded their expectations of a Catholic retreat experience,. Even more folks thought the discussion leader for their small group paved the way for relationship and authentic interaction. Join us this year!
