    Ash Wednesday at The University of Scranton

    February 23, 2021

    The University has been so blessed this academic year to continue celebrating the Eucharist in the midst of this global pandemic. University President Scott R. Pilarz, S.J., made it a priority for Campus Ministries to facilitate a weekly Sunday Mass in the Byron Center with about 320 chairs set apart so congregants would be socially distanced.

    Following the Royals Safe Together plan and the directives from the Diocese of Scranton, the University community has been able to worship together as a faith community since the fall semester.

    On Ash Wednesday, Campus Ministries offered four Masses for students, faculty and staff. Just about 1,000 people received ashes, applied with a Q-tip, and celebrated the Eucharist.
