"Return to Me” Offered for Lent 2017

Vice President for Mission Rev. William Campbell, S.J., ’87 and College Marketing and Communications will once again offer a daily digital reflection series for the holy season of Lent, which begins with Ash Wednesday on March 1 and concludes on Easter Sunday, April 16. Each day, subscribers will receive a reflection on the reading of the day written by Holy Cross professors, students, chaplains, staff and alumni.

“Return to Me: Lenten Reflections from Holy Cross” has been offered annually during Lent for the past two years, with over 2,000 participants. Here’s what some past recipients have said about the experience:

“I just wanted to say thanks for a wonderful spiritual journey this Lenten season. I enjoyed the daily reflections and loved how they often fit right in with some of my other daily devotionals.” – alumna, class of 1982

“Warm thanks for the interesting and inspiring messages during Lent! I remain an imperfect practicing Catholic and have grown increasingly prayerful as the years have passed, so these messages were important for me.” – alumnus, class of 1959

“I looked forward to the reflections every day of Lent. I hope to continue my prayers and reflection throughout the rest of year.” – parent of a member of the class of 2017

“Whether you have subscribed in past years, or are looking for a new resource to enhance your devotion in this holy season, it is my hope that these daily reflections will help all members of our community enter deeply into the season of Lent,” says Fr. Campbell.
