Ash Wednesday was March 5. It marks the official start of Lent, a period of sacrifice and reflection before the celebration of the resurrection Jesus Christ. (Yes, I’m a Catholic, so this is stuff that I can recite in my sleep.)

Junior Warden Julia Gable said, “This is our third year offering ‘Ashes to Go’ at the Decatur Marta station on Ash Wednesday.”

Rev. Pamela Cooper-White said it was, a “Wonderful experience.”
