Ash Wednesday is Feb 10. The distribution of ashes on campus will take place at Catholic Masses held at the Chapel of St. Ignatius at 8 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 5 p.m. and 8 p.m., and at the Ecumenical Prayer Service at 7 p.m. at Campion Chapel. The Ecumenical Service will be an evening of praise and worship featuring Gospel Recording Artist, William Demps and preaching by Rev. Darrell Goodwin. Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent, a 40-day period of fasting, prayer, alms giving and repentance for Christians before the celebration of Easter. People receive ashes on their foreheads on Ash Wednesday as a remembrance of our mortality and a sign of our desire for reconciliation.
