A day of penance and prayer, Ash Wednesday is an important Catholic event. Many people choose to mark the day by wearing ashes on their forehead in the sign of the cross or by wearing black clothes. Traditionally this is done with ashes from a sacred fire used for religious services like Mass.

Ash Wednesday is a moveable holiday that falls on the first day of Lent, the Christian season of fasting and penance. Ash Wednesday can also be known as “Passion Sunday”, given that it is often seen as a precursor to Easter. Christians are traditionally marked with ashes by an officiant, symbolizing both repentance for one’s sins and the hope of being cleansed or reborn.
