Lent

As we prepare for Christ's Passion, Death, and Resurrection, Campus Ministry offers many exciting ways to help you engage with your faith throughout the Lenten season. 

 

LENTEN REFLECTION MATERIALS 
 

Quote-A-Day Journal

The Grotto Network created a quote-a-day journal. This journal provides an opportunity to take a moment each day to pause and reflect on where we are going, where God is leading us. A small step every day can lead us to new horizons if we hang with it for 40 days. 

Lent: Perfection need not apply
