Author Father Larry Richards Urges Men to Become the "Man That God Created You to Be"

Print Email

Father Larry Richards, best-selling author of "Be A Man," brings his powerful message of spirituality to men of all ages to the Parish of Saints Philip & James on Monday, July 25 at 7:30 p.m. in the main church.

Because of the unavoidable cancellation of this event in March due to a snowstorm, a larger-than-usual capacity crowd is expected on this rescheduled date. Hundreds will be on the scene to meet, greet and learn from this captivating, authentic and enthusiastic speaker who has helped change hearts, minds and lives worldwide.

Not preachy, but direct, Father Richards challenges men to be strong, without putting on a mask of false strength or machismo. He provides the tools that men need to overcome their weaknesses and limitations and to become the "Man That God Created You to Be."

The event is sponsored by the parish's Men's Forum @ SSPJ, which is entering its fourth year and welcomes men in their twenties, thirties, forties and older twice a month to the parish campus.

The parish is located at One Carow Place in St. James. There is no charge to attend, but advance registration is recommended. To register, call (631) 584-5454. For more information, go to www.mensforum@sspj.org.
