Lent at Fordham: Journey in Mercy – From Darkness to Light

Lent & Easter at Fordham 2017

The season of Lent is a time of preparation for Easter, the great feast of the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus. It is a new beginning and our way out of the shadows of despair, disease and death. The path from darkness to light calls for our conversion, our return to God whose Name is Mercy, with all our hearts. The journey invites us to participate in all three practices the Church offers for our growth in holiness: prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.

Fordham Campus Ministry captures the spirit of this time of God’s favor under these banners:

  • Prayer to deepen our relationship with God: Journey in Mercy— From Death to New Life
  • Fasting in solidarity with the least and weakest among us: Journey in Mercy— From Despair to Hope
  • Almsgiving (time, talent, resources) to activate the spirit of mercy: Journey in Mercy— From Sadness to Joy

Join us in this penitential and joyful celebration of Lent and Easter!
