Students at Sacred Heart University Stress the Importance of Orthopraxy

Students at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT say that access to the sacraments, devotions, and practices of Catholic liturgical life make it easier for them to practice their faith and observe the season of Lent while in college.

Meghan Amaya, writing for the Sacred Heart student publication, Spectrum, interviewed students about their practice of the faith on campus.

“I do not believe it is hard to be a Catholic college student because if you are a firm believer then no one should alter your faith and practices,” said sophomore Taylor Magnotti. “Finding a strong group of friends that are Catholics on campus [helps] improve your faith-sharing and ability to understand what it means to be Catholic.”

As part of the University’s Lenten observance, students have organized a living Stations of the Cross which took place on Feb. 15, as well as retreats and daily Mass.
