Lenten Relay for Life Service Opportunity

What are you doing to get involved on campus?

In observance of the Lenten season, Campus Ministry and the A.L.I.V.E. Club invite you to participate in our RELAY FOR LIFE service opportunity.

Lent is known as a time of prayer, penance, and almsgiving. Throughout the season of Lent, it is common to give up something or to do something to better your life for those 40 days.

For example, if you really love chocolate and sweets, it would be difficult to go without it for that long period of time, right? Well this is more of a reason to give it up.

To take this process one step further, we are inviting you to:

(1) Write what you are giving up on one of the paper leaves in the basket in the Chapel or in the Brennan display case and tape your leaf onto image of the tree.
(2) Make a personal commitment to make a small donation towards Relay For Life when (or if) you slip up on your Lenten promise, such as eating that piece of chocolate you promised you wouldn’t.
(3) To show your solidarity with Relay for Life, wear one a purple strings (also at the Chapel and in the Brennan display case) on your wrist during Lent
(4) Bring your donation to the Relay For Life Mass in the McLean Chapel on Sunday, March 18th at 7 PM.

Relay For Life is an event to commemorate those who have fought the battle of cancer. As some of you may know, Relay For Life will be on the Holy Names campus March 20 to the 21st. If you would like to sign up for a team or start your own team, please visit
