Letter to the Editors

Friends,

 

I am wondering about the basis for your claim (or insinuation) that Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the Lenten season for only Roman Catholics? Nothing could be further from the truth. Christians all over the world observe this period, including many on this campus who are not Roman Catholic. Because it is impossible to schedule two worship services in the same space at the same time, I take ashes out to where students and staff may be congregating. Last year, I was in Hillwood Commons. The response was overwhelming. I have yet to decide whether to go back to Hillwood or try Winnick. Regardless, ashes are not saved for just the Roman Catholic community here or anywhere.
