  • Lenten Challenge 2016: Mercy and Sustainability

    Join us to experience the depth of God’s mercy during Lent by caring for our common home and for the poor.

    This Lent, students will be offering weekly reflections on how they're trying to live both mercifully and with an intentional commitment to sustainability, with daily challenges for living mkore sustainably and mercifully. These reflections and challenges (starting Ash Wednesday (February 10) and ending on Easter) should prove to be a rich exploration of spirituality.

Experience the Sacrament of Reconciliation

Stations of the Cross

This centuries-old Christian tradition is a vibrant way to reflect on what Jesus' passion and death mean for you today. Around the world people engage in this practice in various ways--connecting it to issues of social justice, parading ancient religious statues around the street--in search of ways to make it their own. Here at SCU we offer a few different ways of experiencing this. All are student-run and inspired by contemporary practices and issues.We hope you'll join us for one of these.
