St. Michael's Lent starts August 15, 2023
Do you believe that demons are real? Yes? What are you doing about it?
Starting August 15th and ending on the Feast of the Archangel Michael (Sept. 29th), follow in St. Francis's footsteps, and commit to living a more simplified lifestyle — void of the noise of the world, and instead more in tune with a conversation with the Lord. While not well known in the Church today, this spiritual exercise is a powerful expression of the Faith – and desperately needed in our culture today. This Exodus spiritual exercise, steeped in the spiritual tradition of the Church, honors St. Michael the Archangel via 40 days of prayer, asceticism, and fraternity.
During his life, St. Francis of Assisi observed a 40-day, Lent-like period of prayer, asceticism, and fraternity in preparation for the Feast of St Michael the Archangel. It was in 1224 during St. Michael’s Lent when Francis received the great grace of the Stigmata — the Five Wounds of Christ. Saint Michael has long been a special patron of Exodus and Exodus Men. In fact, Exodus was originally founded on Michaelmas Day in 2015.

In the past 90 days, how often did you eat a little too much, drink a little too much, or spend too much time in the office? How many times did you ignore your wife, children, or friends just to thumb through social media, watch Netflix, YouTube, or doom scroll through the headlines?
Guys, we were made for more than this. If you desire freedom from these attachments — Freedom to be a better husband, a better father, and a better man for others — check out Exodus 90.
Our Pastor - Father DeAscanis - offers more insights on the benefits of Exodus 90.
Numerous men from St. Louis and St. Francis pastorate have participated in multiple Exodus 90 sessions over the past several years. All of these men had their lives transformed for the better. Many continue to invest in the relationships they formed during that time by continuing to meet weekly as a fraternity on Monday evening.
