Today is Ash Wednesday and we began our Lenten journey as a college community at our Ash Wednesday Liturgy. During this season, we are called to pray, fast and give in order to refresh our hearts and refocus on our relationship with God and building stronger, loving and merciful relationships with others. Prayer, fasting and almsgiving are actions which allow us to experience God’s unending mercy and love and to share this with others. In doing so, we find newness of life, a sense of joy and a profound humility.
The Social Justice Committee today launched the 2019 Project Compassion Appeal. The committee also kindly gave of their time to cook pancakes on Shrove Tuesday to raise money for Project Compassion. We are blessed to have students who are so willing to be of service to others.
