Lent is a time when we join the whole Church in a forty day retreat. The Lenten retreat is a time for the catechumens and candidates to prepare to receive the Easter Sacrament and for us, as the community who welcomes them, to prepare to renew our Baptismal Promises. The Sunday Gospels during Lent provide rich content for prayer. These Gospels along with an introduction and reflections questions are offered for each Sunday of Lent.

With hundreds of 18- to 20-year-olds housed under one roof, residence halls are prime places to play. At Marquette, they're also prime places to pray.
