Stations of the Cross

March 27, 2018 at Noon
At the Columba Statue

Iona students re-enact the story of the Passion of Jesus. Student clubs and organizations offer a prayer at each station as participants walk through campus. The Stations of the Cross is a Lenten devotion that offers witness to Jesus’ Passion and Death. Soup and bread served at Montgomery House afterwards.

Deepen your Lent by doing Operation Rice Bowl!

Rice Bowl is a way to give to our neighbors who are suffering from poverty. 75% of the total funds collected during Lent will support Catholic Relief Services’ programs around the world, while the remainder will be given to a local soup kitchen.  $1 a day for 40 days of Lent means: 1 month of food for a family, 2 years of seed for a farmer, or 3 months of clean water for 4 families Stand in solidarity with the world’s poor by giving of yourself this Lent.

Please pick up your Rice Bowl after Ash Wednesday mass, after the services or in the Office of Mission and Ministry. Please return the Rice Bowls to the Office by April 11, 2018. Thank you for your help! You are needed!
