We are simply interested in becoming better, more authentic men.

There is a growing number of men located in Indiana and Michigan (Michiana) who have completed the Men’s Rites of Passage (MROP) developed by Richard Rohr.

Over the past 4-5 years we have gathered annually to connect around our interest in male spirituality. We also sponsor meetings and retreats for men. Many of us have attended meetings and retreats of our neighboring Illinois MALEs region. There is a national umbrella group called Illuman that supports the regional MALEs groups.

We desire to reach out to all men in our region. If you would like to learn more about us or have questions, use the Contact Us link above.
