Ashes distributed as Lent begins

Catholic parishes all over the world marked the beginning of Lent with the distribution of ashes on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 18. The Catholic Courier visited two Rochester-area churches, St. Thomas More in Brighton and St. Pius Tenth in Chili, to capture local Catholics observing the start of the Lenten season.
