The men of Talmadge Hill have been gathering each month for fifteen years, warmly welcoming any man who wishes to have a deeper connection to his life, his work and his family. It is called the “Cornfield” which is a reference to the 1977 book by Richard Bach in which two men landed their biplanes in a cornfield to learn the deeper mysteries of life through their conversation and personal exploration.
Whether you attend Talmadge Hill or not, you are welcome to join us on the First Saturday of the Month throughout the year for breakfast and honest conversation.
Each meeting includes a welcoming that invites each man to “check in” and let the other men know what’s happening in his life. Usually a question is posed to invite deeper reflection on our lives, our faith and our relationships.
Throughout the year the men of the church plan, organize or support activities for the greater benefit of the community.
- Organization for the annual HomeFront Day–refurbishing a home for a qualifying family in Bridgeport
- Support for the Breakfast Run–feeding homeless men and women in New York City
- Serving meals for the Parenting Program at St. Josephs
- Hosting the annual Father’s Day All Church Picnic
All men are also invited to participate in the annual Cornfield Men’s Retreat Weekend.
