Our Mission

Our mission is to support men in the quest for lives of compassion, integrity, responsibility, and balance. We are a caring, intentionally diverse brotherhood, committed to social justice, and offering opportunities for intimate sharing, personal growth, and spiritual deepening.

Fourth Monday Discussion

On the fourth Monday of the month, interested men meet in Room 114 (usually) from 7:00 to 9:00 pm to discuss a wide variety of topics dealing with men’s issues. Most meetings begin with a check-in. These discussions and events/topics are announced via our web site and email to UUMF participants.

Support Groups

The Men's Fellowship currently has a dozen closed committed active support groups. They usually meet twice a month at members’ homes. The groups range in size from five to eight men. If, after becoming familiar with the Fellowship, you would like to consider membership in a group, please contact Armin Kuhlman, support group coordinator. These are not crisis groups and require a significant time commitment.

Steering Committee

The direction of the Fellowship and upcoming events are discussed and coordinated at regularly scheduled meetings of the Steering Committee. We work on the consensus model and welcome input from all who attend.  Kim Cohn and Fergal O’Doherty  are our current conveners. Please email them regarding the next meeting.
