Man on Campus: Lenten Sacrifice

(COVINGTON, La.) — Mardi Gras is the last big blowout of a good time before Ash Wednesday, which signifies the day before the beginning of Lent in the Catholic Church.

When Lent comes, many Catholics give something up as a sacrifice to God and a memorial to the 40 days that Christ spent in the desert. The SPS community largely participates in that practice. Here are some of the Lenten sacrifices made on campus.
