Ash Wednesday on Campus

Wednesday, February 13, was Ash Wednesday. For the second year in a row, students, faculty, and staff at AASU were invited to the observance of a Holy Lent through the offering of ashes on campus. Episcopal Campus Ministry was there to impose ashes, and more than 70 students stopped by for ashes, prayers, and to mark the beginning of Lent.

We are blessed to be observing Lent with you, and we look forward to celebrating the Resurrection of Christ with you as well.

Blessings on your Lenten journey,

The Episcopirates

Almighty God, you have created us out of the dust of the earth: Grant that these ashes may be to us a sign of our mortality and penitence, that we may remember that it is only by your gracious gift that we are given everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.
