Gladstone Men’s Network
The Men’s Network started in 2017. The Star of the Sea Parish Men’s Network has had a number of events over recent years, including men’s breakfasts and monthly holy hours on the first Friday. In October 2021, a Parish-based Men Alive Weekend was held with over 43 men from Gladstone and Rockhampton attending. The opportunity for men to grow in their faith through common prayer, connection with each other, and in service to the parish community are the three main aims of the Network.
