Lent this year begins on Ash Wednesday, February 22, 2023 and concludes on Easter Sunday, April 9.
The College of the Holy Cross is excited to offer a daily Lenten reflection series, “Return to Me: Lenten Reflections from Holy Cross, 2023.” This resource is designed for use during the holy season of Lent by all interested members of the Holy Cross community: students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends. It will contain reflections written by a wide variety of people with connections to the College — professors, current students, chaplains, staff, and alumni. We are hopeful that many members of the Holy Cross community will want to take advantage of this resource.
"Return to Me" will be offered as a daily digital reflection series. Those who subscribe will be sent an email each morning containing a reflection, and the listing of sacred texts from Scripture for each day of Lent (Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 22 and concludes on Easter Sunday, April 9.) The reflections will also be made available throughout Lent, as a print booklet, in St. Joseph Memorial Chapel. The full PDF of reflections can be downloaded below. We invite all Christians in the Holy Cross community to join us on our Lenten journey, and hope that those of other faith traditions might find something of value in the reflections prepared by the contributors.

In hopes of more fully sharing the rich gifts of our community, we have invited four artists to offer visual reflections on the readings as part of the Return to Me series. Read more about the artists.
