March 6, 2019: Ash Wednesday
Preaching for Ash Wednesday, Christine E. Boyle, Director of Campus Ministry at St. Peter's University in Jersey City, NJ, offers a reflection on how we might enter into this Lenten season, especially in light of the clergy sexual abuse and coverup scandal: "And so as I enter my forty day journey of Lent, like many in the church, I am praying to discern a grace-led and grace-filled pathway forward. Discernment does not mean slow or passive acting; it means deliberately prayerful, and Spirit-led listening and action so I can best serve Christ and our church, as an individual and needed member of our assembly."
Christine E. Boyle is the Director of Campus Ministry at Saint Peter’s University in Jersey City, NJ. She is a proud alumna of the University of Scranton (B.A. History) and the Jesuit School of Theology at Santa Clara University (M.Div). She resides in the Jersey City area with husband and family. Outside of work, she is involved in a local women’s prayer group and her parish.
