Can you explain what's happening at Michigan State University more regarded as a party school than for its spirituality?
More than 7,000 attended Ash Wednesday services at a Catholic parish in East Lansing that caters to students. And for most of mid-Michigan, last Wednesday night was the start of a heavy snow storm.
Lansing State Journal columnist John Schneider writes about his conversation with a Catholic priest at the parish where each attender gets an ash cross put on their forehead.
He raises the question of why Ash Wednesday draws more students than either celebrations for Christmas or Easter?
Anybody have any ideas?
