Our Lenten journey helps us to rediscover our faith through the practices of Lent. The Lenten traditions give us an opportunity to deepen our experience of faith, improve our interior life, as well as heightening our awareness of the needs of the less fortunate through outreach and works of charity.
This Lenten season, Spiritan Campus Ministry is asking us to help our brothers and sisters in the Philippines. To learn more about how you can help, please visit this website.
Through the practices of Lent, we can experience a growth in our spiritual wellbeing. While sometimes regarded as a predominantly Roman Catholic observance, these actions are practiced by other faith traditions as well. The practices that have been passed on from generation to generation invite us to share our common joy in community as we prepare for the Easter season. What you give up can change your life and what you give can help to empower and transform the lives of individuals, families and communities around the world.
