The discussion was led by Sue Horgan of Exodus World Service, a Christian advocacy group. Information about Exodus can be found here.

The men of St. Mary's meet for breakfast on the first Saturday of each month from September thru May for fellowship and to plan activities that give back to the community-at-large. The group this past year has been volunteering in Chicago's Night Ministry Program where meals are prepared at St. Mary's and served to residents in the South Shore, Pilsen, and Lawndale neighborhoods in Chicago. The group also enjoyed Chicago Cubs, Northwestern football, bowling outings in 2016 with more social outings being planned for 2017.
