40 days to be a better man.
Who will you become by Easter?
What if your Lent was
more than a Seafood Feast?
The Lenten Fish Fry. It’s iconic at this point. It’s almost like Lent and Fish Frys are inseparable — which begs the question: if there’s no Fish Fry at the parish this year, is it even Lent?
All jokes aside, there is truth in how we as Catholics embrace Fridays in Lent as though they’re meant to be seafood feasts. But, to our detriment, we end up missing out on so much that the Lord wants to share with us (on those days especially).
Lent for Men is a
40-day, Catholic program for men.
Lent is an age-old tradition given to us by the Church as a time for prayer and penance. If you've observed Lent in the past, how did it go? Have you frequently arrived at Easter Sunday wishing you'd finished Lent with the same enthusiasm you had when you began?
How it works.
You will journey with your brothers through the Gospel of Mark. Each morning you’ll have a passage from the Bible and a reflection to guide your silent prayer.
We can’t say “yes” to God until we have said “no” to the world and its comforts. You’ll return to the Church’s ancient – and largely forgotten – tradition of asceticism. That’s a fancy word that means “acts of self denial.”
Invite men you know to journey with you: your friends, co-workers, brothers, or that random guy at Church. You'll meet weekly and follow a simple structure for prayer, encouragement, and accountability.
