The penitential season of Lent began on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2024, with the distribution of ashes at faith communities across the Diocese of Rochester. At St. Lucy Church in Retsof, the day began with a Mass and the imposition of ashes. At Rochester’s St. John Fisher University, students were offered several opportunities to receive ashes, including during a 12:30 p.m. Mass at the Hermance Family Chapel of St. Basil the Great.
