St. Michael’s Lent

St. Michael's Lent

An Ancient Church practice.

Revived.

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.

In fact, it was in 1224 during St. Michael’s Lent when Francis received the great grace of the Stigmata — the Five Wounds of Christ. 

Be prepared for the unseen spiritual battle

While not well known in the Church today, this ancient spiritual exercise is a powerful expression of the Faith – and desperately needed in our culture today.

The team that brought you Exodus 90 is now launching a new program, steeped in the spiritual tradition of the Church, honoring St. Michael the Archangel and St. Francis.

St. Michael’s Lent is 40 days of prayer, asceticism, and fraternity that Starts August 15th.
