Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday services are not just held in Catholic Churches but by many Christian Faith Churches as seen here at the Faith Baptist Church in Altoona.

For those who celebrate it’s a time for fasting, repenting, & reflecting on mortality.

After service or mass church attendees are invited to receive ashes on their forehead often in the shape of a cross pattern.

The ashes used are made from Palm Sunday Palms which are burned & blessed.
