The Cross and the Campus: Learn the Love of Christ this Lent  

Lent This spring, Catholics everywhere will gather as they do every year to receive ashes on Ash Wednesday. Why not also take time to meditate and deeply reflect on the Lenten season in the weeks that follow?

Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology (ICSST) is pleased to present its annual Lenten reflection series, "The Cross and the Campus: Learning the Love of Christ This Lent." Reverend Monsignor Joseph Reilly, S.T.L., Ph.D., Rector/Dean, and Dianne Traflet, J.D., S.T.D., Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and Administration and Assistant Professor of Pastoral Theology, will offer a reflection each weekday and Saturday delivered via e-mail from Wednesday, March 2 through Thursday, April 14.

This year's series uses visio divina, a slow, contemplative prayer which uses an image or piece of art as a focus point. The emails will offer images of 40 campus sites from Seton Hall's main campus in South Orange, New Jersey, inviting participants to ponder the parts of campus that help us to "Learn the Love of Christ."

ICSST's Lenten reflection series brings more than 1,200 subscribers together including Seton Hall students, faculty, staff, administrators and other members of the surrounding community from near and far to join in a union of prayer and reflection during Lent.

Immaculate Conception Seminary is a House of Formation for the Roman Catholic priesthood and the School of Theology of Seton Hall University. As a House of Formation, the Seminary offers men preparing for the priesthood the personal, academic, ministerial and spiritual formation essential for their conversion to Jesus Christ and for their commitment to a life of service to the Church.

As a School of Theology, the Seminary provides a theological and philosophical foundation for men and women pursuing undergraduate and graduate studies; preparing for ministries among the people of God; and varied opportunities for continuing theological education.

Forming priests for God's people has remained the Seminary's constant focus, and the Seminary faculty—well-educated authors and scholars in their own fields—devote their time and energy to preparing these men for priesthood amidst the challenges of the 21st century. The School also focuses on the education of lay men and women in theology, permanent deacons, religious who are not studying for ordination, and already-ordained priests—not only providing for them academically, but also for their personal, pastoral, and spiritual formation.
