Penitential season of Lent begins

Catholics from across the diocese marked the beginning of Lent with the distribution of ashes on Ash Wednesday, March 1. Bishop Salvatore R. Matano imposed ashes on students of Siena Catholic Academy in Brighton, who attended Mass at Brighton’s St. Thomas More Church. Parishioners also received ashes at St. Patrick Church in Cato, St. John Church in Port Byron and St. Michael Church in Rochester.
