Join the Office of Spiritual Life and the Chaplains' Office as we begin the Lenten season.  A brief service will be held on the steps of Wait Chapel, ashes will be imposed.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent, a 40-day journey of introspection and repentance in the Christian tradition. The imposition of ashes, traditionally made from palm branches from the previous Palm Sunday, reminds participants of their mortality and invites them into this period of prayer and fasting.
