March 9 was Ash Wednesday, which marks the start of the liturgical season of Lent. The season begins 40 days before Easter, not including Sundays. In some religious traditions, people fast or give something up in observance of the season. A few MU students and alumni talk about their plans for the Lent and their feelings after the service in St. Thomas More Parish & Newman Center.
