Ash Wednesday Services

In Announcements, by , on February 28th, 2017

This Wednesday, March 1, marks the beginning of the season of Lent. Please join us for Ash Wednesday services in Alumni Chapel:

  • 8:30 a.m. Prayer
  • 12:15 p.m. Mass
  • 5:15 p.m. Prayer

Wednesday is also a day of fasting (ages 18-59) and abstinence from meat (ages 14-plus) for Catholics (except when a physical or mental health concern is present).

For more information on these guidelines, please visit  or speak with a member of the Campus Ministry team!

Our campus theme for Lent 2017 is: “Ask. Seek. Knock.”  Based on Jesus’ words in the Gospel of Matthew (7:7), “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Niagara University Campus Ministry invites you to:

  • ASK God to help you grow closer to Him;
  • SEEK out ways to fully live “Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving;”
  • KNOCK – be attentive and welcoming to those standing at YOUR door.

May God bless you through this Lenten journey!
