NEED TO TALK?

Are you looking for ways to deepen your spiritual life this Lenten season? Have you felt a desire to learn how to pray? Are you questioning your faith? Have you been unable to let go of something from your past? Do you have questions about important areas such as family, friends, or your vocation?  Campus Ministry is here to listen, offer guidance, and share the wisdom and hope our faith provides.

Throughout Lent, both lay Campus Ministers or Holy Cross priests will be available Mon.-Thurs. from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in 113 Coleman-Morse (across from the marble ball). No appointment necessary.

Faculty Lenten Mini-Retreat

Thursday, February 15, 11:00 a.m.—1:00 p.m.
Stayer Center, Morris Commons

From Ashes to the Living Font: Lent begins with ashes and dust, reminders of our shared mortality, but it ends at the font in which all Christians have received the eternal life of the Trinity. Prof. Kimberly Belcher of Theology will facilitate individual and communal reflection using the imagery in the 13th-14th century mosaic ceiling from the Baptistery of Saint John the Baptist in Florence and the Roman Catholic rites for Ash Wednesday and the Easter Vigil. Protestants and Eastern Christians, as well as Catholics, are invited to consider the ties between Christian initiation, Christian seasonal practices of repentance, and death and resurrection.

RSVP by Wednesday, February 7 with this link. Lunch will be provided.
For more information, contact Fr. Frank Murphy, C.S.C. at fmurphy4@nd.edu or 574-631-5242
