Eucharistic Minister Dale Grey marks attendees at Norwich St. Bartholomew’s Roman Catholic Church during Wednesday's ceremonies. Behind him Father Ralph Bove also administers. Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent for many Christians. The ashes are to remind believers of their mortality. The occasion is often marked with fasting and used as a time for personal restraint and reflection.
