Current Fraternity Goal:
"Our goal is for each fraternity member, in a spirit of service, to initiate encounters with the marginalized by living the example of Matthew 25; and commit to caring for creation by increasing their efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle."
Please join us for our monthly gatherings.
All are welcome!
For gathering schedule see our Schedule of Gathering and Events page.
