Ash Wednesday Coming Up

Thanks be to God for young zealous priests!!!

One of the youngest (and newest) priests of our archdiocese has agreed to come to the college to celebrate Mass on Ash Wednesday. This is a huge blessing since for many of the students our classes conflict with the Ash Wednesday masses at the nearby parishes and/or we don't have vehicles and since the campus is on old farm land and not exactly in town if you don't have transportation getting to Mass can be difficult. There are no classes scheduled between 11:00am and 11:45am however so it's a perfect slot for Mass and everyone can get to it! Yipeee!!!

On that note, just a reminder - Lent starts in a week. You might want to start thinking about it and coming up with a few ideas as to how you will observe this coming Lenten Season.
