The Rev. Elsa H. Worth, and Deacon Derek Scalia, distributed ashes at Franklin Pierce University on Ash Wednesday, which marks the start of the Christian season of Lent. Organized by Students of Faith FPU, Ashes on the Go was available to the Franklin Pierce community in the Glass Foyer.

“It was an amazing thing to see,” Organizer and FPU Junior Carina Dillon of Rutland, Massachusetts said. “Faith is not something commonly talked about on this campus, and having a day where students were openly practicing their faith and recognizing this important day in our religion filled my heart with joy. It felt empowering.”
