Exodus 90. We will be free!

What kind of man do you want to be?

Exodus 90

This Lent 2021, our North Glengarry Parishes invites all men seeking authentic freedom to join their brothers in Christ for Exodus 90, which will kick off on January 4th, 2021! Exodus 90 is a 90-day spiritual exercise that gives Catholic men a clear path for the journey to freedom through prayer, asceticism and support. More than 30,000 men around the country have made the Exodus and transformed their lives.

You can, too!

Dear Brothers in Christ,

Last year I joined a group and started Exodus 90 with some of my brother priests! It was a good, eye-opening, experience for me and all involved. Since then I have been hearing of this beautiful program which helped many men on their journey of faith!

Each Sunday when I look at our congregation – even during this pandemic – , I’m encouraged to see so many husbands, fathers and devout men of God. We are truly blessed in our North Glengarry Parishes to have such incredible men as examples of what
it means to be Christlike.

Still, each one of us knows he could be doing a better job at living a happy, healthy and holy lifestyle. The statistics show that we men have room for improvement:

  • Half of men struggle with an addiction like overeating, overspending or viewing pornography
  • We spend nearly 2.5 hours a day on social media and 6 hours a day watching TV
  • 1 in 5 of us struggle with some form of anxiety disorder
  • Nearly half of us could be labelled a “workaholic.”

These numbers tell us that men — myself included — have become chained by modern life. We’re no longer free with the freedom of Christ. It’s time we men band together to stand up to our sins, bad habits and addictions. It’s time we become who God made us to be as men and leaders. It’s time we reclaim the freedom won for us by Jesus Christ.

That’s why I invite you to join me and the men of our parishes for our Lenten Exodus 90. This is a 90-day spiritual exercise for men to forge their way to freedom in body and spirit. Along the way you’ll learn how to:

  • Root yourself in prayer
  • Advance in spiritual freedom through self-mastery
  • Reach your goals with the support of a band of brothers

Again, to date, more than 30,000 men have “made the Exodus” and transformed their lives. Will you join them? We will host our parish Exodus 90 kickoff on January 4th, 2021. If you have any questions, or if you would like to enroll yourself or someone you know in this program at our parish, please contact Tony at 613.551.6884.

I look forward to making this Exodus to freedom with you. Through the prayers and intercession of St. Finnan, St. Catherine of Sienna, St. James, St. Anthony, and St. Michael, I remain, your brother in Christ – Fr. jon.

God bless you, and Mary protect you! Peace.

“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
