Exodus 90

Become a better man, father and Catholic
"Nothing great is ever achieved without much enduring."
— St. Catherine of Siena

Brother Carl Biscevic is inviting a few  good  men who want to become  better  men. He has uncovered an intriguing program called


and he would like to get a group of 4-7 men together to undertake the program.

Exodus 90 is a challenging 90-day program of asceticism and self-denial designed to free men from the bondage of the culture and comforts of the world: technology, laziness, addictions to sports, TV, food, alcohol, drugs and pornography. It was formed in 2013 as a pilot program for seminarians and was re-presented from the traditions of the Early Church. 

Prayer and fasting for the victims of sexual abuse and for deep and lasting purification of the Church. To give new life for men to be more present to their parishes, wives and children by removing distractions. 90 days is the scientifically proven time it takes to return the brain to a normalized state capable of forming new, lasting and healthy habits.

All Knights are invited to attend an informational meeting on July 30th at 7:30pm in the St. Michael Large Hall .
