Lenten Season

"The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a mighty savior, who will rejoice over you with gladness, and renew you in his love" (Zephaniah 3:17).

"So humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time  " (1 Peter 5:6).

"For where your treasure is, there also will be your heart" (Matthew 6:21).

The season of Lent is a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, penitence, and almsgiving as we prepare for Easter- when Christ rises from the dead and frees us from the bondage of sin. During Lent, we join Christ in the desert for forty days and recall the events leading up to His great sacrifice and miraculous Resurrection. 

Lent is a wonderful time for us to catch our breath during the race to the end of the school year.  We recall our own mortality and atone for our sins.  It is a special time for mending our relationships with each other and our God.

The resources below are just a few of the many wonderful resources available to help us prepare for Lent and grow spiritually during this season of Lent. I invite you to use them, send them to friends, or share with your students. Use this Lent to find silence, deepen your relationship with Christ, and prepare for the joyous Resurrection of Christ Jesus. The Office of Campus Ministry supports you in your spiritual formation and seeks to journey alongside you.
