The Ash Wednesday Prayer Service gathered all students and faculty in Tillman Hall. Students read from Scripture and Psalms. Father Sean read the gospel and gave a homily on the season of lent. He asked any student who wished to come up and tell what they were giving up for lent. Three sphomores did and their lenten sacrifices will be: Student 1 – No Facebook, Student 2 – No texting, Student 3 – No gossiping.

Following the distribution of ashes by Fr. Sean, Dr. Walker, Mr. Downs and Mrs. Rodnick, Matt Porchivina addressed the students. He explained the campus ministry students have decided that as a school, we will concentrate on acts of kindness and “Pay It Forward” practices. Wrist bands will be given out and everyone is encouraged to pay forward all acts of kindness.
