St. Joseph Chapel

The a digital reflection series will arrive in daily emails to subscribers

Holy Cross will once again offer a daily digital reflection series for the holy season of Lent, which begins with Ash Wednesday on Feb. 17 and concludes on Easter Sunday, April 4. Each day, subscribers will receive a reflection on the reading of the day written by Holy Cross faculty, students, chaplains, staff and alumni.

This will be the seventh annual offering of "Return to Me: Lenten Reflections from Holy Cross," which has welcomed thousands of participants each year. Here’s what some past recipients have said about the experience:

"Thank you for sharing this Lenten journey with me, an alumna. Often, after a long day at the clinic or teaching my medical students, I found inspiration in the reading and reflection awaiting me in the email. This email Lenten series has been one of the best connections I have had with Holy Cross since my student years; I felt like HC put effort into caring for my spirituality." – Alumna, class of 1980

"I wish to express my thanks for the daily Lenten meditations this year. I found them well done, some provocative and all of them uplifting. Your work certainly made Lent that much richer for me." – Alumnus, class of 1958

"Thank you for the thoughtful meditations throughout Lent. Hearing different voices sharing their insights challenged me to consider and act on the invitations of the Lenten readings." – Mother and grandmother of alumni
