Ash Wednesday Retreat

The Distribution of Ashes

Mount Michael took the day off from classes to spend a full day of retreat this Ash Wednesday. The Theme for the retreat was “Brotherhood”. The day began with the distribution of ashes and the celebration of the Eucharist.

The retreat that followed was divided up into several breakout sessions, Brotherhood of Self, Brotherhood in Community, and Brotherhood in the Greater Community. Mount Michael alum Eric Crawford ’01 was the keynote speaker of the day. He spoke on Brotherhood and the Greater Community. Mr. Crawford is the Executive Director of the Heart Ministry Center in Omaha.
