February 13, 2013 - 8:00am | Mount Mercy University

Lent begins this Wednesday, February 13th. We cordially invite all members of the Mount Mercy Community to join us in receiving ashes as a sign of our devotion to God, God's grace, and a desire to turn from selfishness and individualism toward a culture of sharing and nourishing the common good.

Ash Wednesday:

  • Mass at 9am at Sacred Heart Convent
  • Mass at 12:05pm in the Chapel of Mercy
  • Inter-Denominational Service at 7pm in the Chapel of Mercy

Throughout Lent, Mount Mercy is sponsoring several other events for students including:

  • Participation in the Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl project this year, from February 13 - March 31
  • Don’t be a Chicken, Do Something! Students are encouraged to look around campus for hidden eggs with a mini challenge inside
  • Stations of the Cross, held February 18th and 19th at 8:30pm, followed by Rosary
  • Communal Reconciliation Service, held March 13th at 4:30pm in the Chapel of Mercy
  • A Seder meal
