The youth of today need fathers. They need men who will step into their lives and lead them to the Truth we all long for. They need a few less interesting people in their lives, and one who is a little more interested. Youth ministry as we know it today is a response to the breakdown of the family, arguably the role of the father. However, rather than addressing symptoms, Fraternus deals with a root issue – fatherlessness. Fraternus equips and inspires men to do what only they can do – be spiritual fathers and mentors to the boys in their life. Every man has what it takes, but not every man had a true mentor as a boy. This is where the Fraternus programming, training and support take a man who is willing, faithful and Catholic and form him into a true mentor which in return causes an entire transformation in a family, community and the culture.
