Ash Wednesday is recognized as an especially important day of prayer by dozens of Christian communities, including Catholics, Lutherans, Methodists, Baptists, Presbyterians, Anglicans and many Evangelical churches. Come to Christ the King Chapel to receive your ashes and begin the 40-day time of prayer, fasting and almsgiving known as Lent.
Ashes will be offered at the following times:
12:05 p.m. (no music) and 8:30 p.m. (music)
A non-denominational Ash service will be held at 4:30 p.m.
Drop-in Ash distribution and prayer will be offered from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Lent is a time of prayer, fasting and giving for dozens of Christian communities. This year, Campus Ministry’s Lenten programming echoes the words of Jesus from the Cross: “I Thirst.” Consider places where you and others thirst for something greater by participating in some of the Lenten practices. Consider devoting time to prayer by attending weekly Adoration or joining a faith-sharing group. Hear Rev. Greg Boyle, SJ, speak about kinship and how gang members in Los Angeles thirst for a second chance at life.
