Lent at Cheverus
Lent is a time of reflection. The 40-day journey to Easter is marked by prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Our President Fr. Robert Pecoraro, S.J. preached at the all-school Ash Wednesday Mass and called upon each of us to reflect on who we can become this Lent and urged us to carry our Lenten practice beyond the 40 days and beyond Easter. Fr. Pecoraro said that when we "rend our hearts" -- or open our hearts, we create space for God. He said, “When God's grace fills our hearts, we can't help but be changed.”
Here are some resources that can help you open your heart to God this Lent:
