Lenten Virtual Mass and Discussion
As part of the ND Senior Alumni Signature Event Series, NDSA is pleased to sponsor a very special Virtual Lenten Celebration on Sunday March 14th from noon - 1:00pm EDT. This will be 4:00PM in the UK since the clocks change in the US at 2AM on the 14th. Mass will be celebrated at the Log Chapel followed by an interactive discussion entitled: "Are Young Catholics Eschewing the Pew?"
Do you look around during mass and wonder why it looks like a "senior retreat", or ask yourself where are all the younger members of the parish? Join this discussion which will be lead by Professor Christian Smith of the ND Sociology Department.
Although this event is sponsored by the ND Senior Alumni Group everyone is welcome to participate.
