SLU Encounter 44
Fri. March 22- Sun. March 24
Hey everyone! We just wanted to remind you that Lent starts tomorrow on Ash Wednesday (2/13 this year) and there are a few options around campus to stay in touch with what’s going on.
First of all, SLU’s Lent blog will begin again tomorrow. It’s sponsored by Mission and Ministry, along with Campus Ministry, and is updated with daily reflections about readings for the day and how they relate to the Lenten season.
There are several different masses taking place throughout the day tomorrow, including one at 7am, one at noon, and one at 9pm in College Church.
You can check out Campus Ministry’s website for a full list of events going on during Lent and we’ll highlight ones as well. They’re starting off with Lenten Movie Night at 9pm on Thursday, watching “The Way” in the Gries Lobby. This will be a weekly event!
Have a blessed season.
