Please join us in welcoming Father Dan who has graciously accepted to come to campus and speak to us about Lent. More specifically how to prepare for the celebration of Good Friday and Easter Sunday through the San Damiano cross.

San Damiano Cross is the one before which St. Francis was praying when he received the commission from the Lord to rebuild the Church. It is the Crucifix that spoke to St. Francis. The original cross presently hangs in the Basilica of St. Clare Church in Assisi, Italy.

Father Dan, a Franciscan, will shed light on this beautiful cross and why it is so cherished among the Franciscans and how we can use this in our own Lenten journey to prepare for the Holy Weekend.

"Most High, glorious God, enlighten the darkness of my heart and give me true faith, certain hope and perfect charity, sense and knowledge, Lord, that I may carry out Your holy and true command." - Prayer before the San Damiano Crucifix
