Patriarch Bible Study was developed by Fr. John Ignatius in Denver in 2007 to provide an opportunity for spiritual fraternity for a small group of dads. Since then, the groups have expanded to 6 states. Learn more about Patriarch Bible Study at www.patriarchmen.org.
As an extension of the Patriarch Men's groups, Fr. John Ignatius has directed Patriarch Men's Weekends in Colorado, Illinois, Nebraska and Minnesota. In 2016, the Servants also began offering a Men's Silent Spiritual Exercises Weekend.
To help families strengthen their own Catholic identity, the Servants celebrate major Catholic feast days by inviting local families to come together and celebrate with prayer, fellowship and food, frequently serving 100 people or more. Major feasts typically include the Feast of the Annunciation, All Saints Day and the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Fr. John Ignatius has spoken at a number of different parishes on strategies and techniques for raising holy and healthy children. To see a video of a Parent's Formation presentation entitled Raising Saints given by Fr. John, follow this link.
