With COVID-19 still a threat, worship leaders are urging increased caution in observing Ash Wednesday on February 17. An ecumenical team has produced a six-page guide to reduce health risks as Christians mark the start of Lent. The guide draws on a range of experts, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. Among the contributors were Dr. Mark W. Stamm, Professor of Christian Worship, and alums Dr. Diana Sanchez-Bushong (M.S.M. ’86) and Brian Hehn (M.S.M. ’12). Lisa Garvin, SMU’s new chaplain, is also a contributor.
