On Sunday, April 5, Palm Sunday, Campus Ministry initiated “The Seven Last Words of Christ.”

The seven last words of Jesus Christ are actually seven short phrases.  In the Gospel, these passages provide a moving account of Jesus’ dying words. 

To recognize this devotion, the Office of Campus Ministry invited seven Canisius students to read and reflect on one passage each day, during Holy Week.  Some offered written reflections; others provided video reflections.  All will be published throughout the week in The Dome, on the college’s Facebook and Twitter accounts, and on the Campus Ministry blog.
