(February 6, 2013—CINCINNATI, OH) Join Franciscan Father Don Miller, OFM, and American Catholic Radio host Judy Zarick at 10 a.m. (EST) on Ash Wednesday, February 13, 2013, as Franciscan Media presents its first-ever free online event!

Fr. Don will help you make the most of Lent by explaining not only the “rules” but the deeper call to conversion. Inspired by the life of St. Francis, Fr. Don will discuss how these 40 days help us become the people God calls us to be, and reminds us that “Lent is meant to be about not what we lack, but what we gain in the form of spiritual growth and conversion.”

A live chat area will allow you to ask questions of Fr. Don during the Ash Wednesday presentation.

Throughout Lent, return to Franciscan Media’s Online Event website to watch new weekly videos with Fr. Don, leading to his final talk on March 27, 2013, during Holy Week.
