(WETM) – On Wednesday, Feb. 26, many Christians around the world begin the observance of Lent with Ash Wednesday.
Ash Wednesday starts the 40-day period of Lent, which ends at midnight on Easter Sunday, April 12.
During that time, many Christians will give up something, such as their favorite food or activities in remembrance of Jesus’ fasting in the wilderness.
Here are some of the Ash Wednesday services in the Twin Tiers.
