Exodus 90 for Men

Mondays, 7-8pm

Weekly, January 1 – March 30

Juan's House, South Bend


Men, are you looking for a New Year's Resolution that'll bring you closer to Christ? Consider joining fellow men in journeying through Exodus 90 where you will have a chance to grow in prayer, asceticism (self-denial), and fraternity while navigating the book of Exodus.

This spiritual exercise runs for 90 days, ending on the Easter Vigil. Fraternity meetings are held weekly, beginning January 8, in addition to monthly group social gatherings.

Joining Exodus 90 through their app or website is required. The first 14 days are free and then membership costs $10/month. Financial help is available.
