"Failing to plan is planning to fail"

As Christian men, we’re called to live lives of prayer, asceticism, and fraternity year-round. For Exodus men, we have intentionally designed spiritual exercises that coincide with the Liturgical calendar and allow for men to gain uncommon freedom throughout the year.


🟣 Lent & Pre-Lent

Date: January 21-March 30

Scripture: Genesis & Joshua

Spiritual Guide: Fr. Boniface Hicks, OSB

Become the renewal in the Church. This year we are continuing an ancient tradition of taking time before Lent to get ready for the intense penitental season. We will be reflecting on God's covenants in Genesis as we whet our appetite for fasting.

On Ash Wednesday we will welcome thousands of more men who will directly join their brothers journeying through Exodus 90. The Season of Lent will invite us to find who/what our modern Pharaohs are and to discover uncommon freedom as we become the renewal in the Church. Together, we will prepare for a meaningful Easter Season.


🟠 Exodus 90

Date: January 1-March 30

Scripture: Exodus and Joshua

Spiritual Guide: Fr. Boniface Hicks, OSB

Exodus 90 always begins ninety days before Easter Sunday. This year it begins on January 1st—it is a 90-day launch into a new year! Exodus 90 follows the story of the Israelites as they find freedom from Pharaoh. During this exercise, we will uncover who/what our modern Pharaohs are as we are introduced to uncommon freedom. Freedom from our vices and freedom to live a life for others.

Exodus 90 calls you to follow a disciplined regimen of prayer, self-denial, and Christian brotherhood for 90 days. Since 2015, it has helped 100,000+ men reclaim their freedom and prioritize the things that really matter.


🟡 Easter

Date: March 31-May 19

Scripture: Announcement coming soon!

Spiritual Guide: Announcement coming soon!

Following the rigorous fasting of Exodus 90, we move into a season of rigorous feasting. During this season of 50 days, we will celebrate the Lord's resurrection. We will not fall back into the overconsumption and binge-ing lifestyle we had before. Instead, we will focus on true Christian feasting and how to do it well. Join us for the Easter feast!


🟢 Summer

Date: May 20-August 14

Scripture: Announcement coming soon!

Spiritual Guide: Announcement coming soon!

During the busy summer, we will take the opportunity to break free from our monotonous and indifferent approach to spirituality. This season will help us overcome the sloth of the summer as we build and strengthen our Plan of Life, and stand strong strong in our prayer, asceticism, and fraternity. We will not allow changing plans or vacations to weaken our resolve to be who we are—uncommonly free.


⚔️ Saint Michael's Lent

Date: August 15-Sept 28

Scripture: Announcement coming soon!

Spiritual Guide: Announcement coming soon!

Saint Michael's Lent is 40 days of prayer, asceticism, and fraternity leading up to the Feast of Saint Michael the Archangel. These forty days of prayer and penance imitate the practice of St. Francis of Assisi, preparing for the feast of the Archangel Michael as we discover the deep realities of the spiritual battle and learn how to respond.


🟡 Autumn

Date: Sept 29-December 2

Scripture: Announcement coming soon!

Spiritual Guide: Announcement coming soon!

Next fall, take up the Holy Sword and lead your brothers to deeper freedom! As we read the first book of Maccabees, we learn about leading and accompanying others in faith.


🟣 Advent

Date: December 1-December 31

Scripture: Announcement coming soon!

Spiritual Guide: Announcement coming soon!

Following the liturgical calendar, we will read the first reading of the Mass during Advent. This season will help us prepare for Christ's twofold coming, recalling and celebrating his nativity in the flesh on Christmas and awaiting his second coming in the parousia at the end of time. During the Season of Advent, we will grow in the theological virtue of hope as we journey to Bethlehem with Joseph and Mary.
