Stritch observes the beginning of Lent with Ash Wednesday services

Monday, February 11, 2013 2:10:00 PM

Stritch will observe a special Mass and service schedule on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 13.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lenten season; a time of reflection and preparation. Ashes, which symbolize penance and remind us of God’s mercy, will be distributed at three Masses and an ecumenical service.

Masses will be held in the St. Francis of Assisi Chapel at 8 a.m., 12:25 p.m., and
4:30 p.m. An ecumenical service will be held at 10 a.m. in the chapel.
