Rev. Joseph Stahura distributed ashes during the Wednesday, Feb. 18, service at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church, Greencastle.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Season of Lent, a time of penance, reflection and fasting in preparation for Christ’s Resurrection on Easter Sunday.

Stahura and several servers distributed the ashes, telling each person who received the mark of the Cross, “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
