Maritime Spiritual Exercises
Annual spiritual exercises for men in the Maritime Provinces


Antigonish, N.S., Canada - A small town appropriately called ‘Monastery’ just outside of Antigonish, Nova Scotia was the setting for the yearly spiritual exercises for Regnum Christi men and friends of the Movement.

Many of the men met Regnum years ago, when Fr Kermit Syren LC was stationed in eastern Canada. Although Legionary priests are not present in any of the four Maritime Provinces now, they have been preaching spiritual exercises each year as a way of providing for the men´s spiritual needs.

Attendees came from Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. This year the preacher was Fr John Luxbacher LC, rector
of the Legionary community in Cornwall, Ontario, and until recently Instructor of the Novices there.

Among those present were four dads of Legionaries or students at apostolic schools – an expression of the great spirit of family that we enjoy as diverse parts of the same Movement.

Mr. Ray Arsenault, who organized the event and is the father of both a Legionary priest and a consecrated woman, says that the exercises seem to yield more and more spiritual fruit each year.

"They just keep on getting better!"
