Loyola University New Orleans’ Jesuit Center presents its 2013 Lenten Series, “Church in the Desert, Church in the World: Reflections in the Spirit of the Second Vatican Council,” a series of events in February and March to observe the season of Lent. Co-sponsored by the Alumni Association, each of these free events will take place on Loyola’s main campus. The series will kick off Feb. 27 with a performance by Christian recording artist Kara Klein.
