Ash Wednesday

Type: Reference material

Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent for western Christian churches. Traditionally, a mark on the forehead is made with the ashes from burned palms as a symbol of death, sorrow and sin. The marking also reminds churchgoers where the ashes come from. It is a reminder of baptism, that death comes to everyone, and that they must change themselves for the better.
