Today is Ash Wednesday


Ash Wednesday is today, February 22, 2023. Many Christians celebrate Ash Wednesday as the start of Lent by marking a Lenten calendar, praying a Lenten daily devotional.  

A vast number of Christians participate in special church services where attendees receive ash on their foreheads. The ashes are created by burning palm fronds from the previous year's Palm Sunday celebrations, and Ash Wednesday gets its name from this custom, which is followed by the exhortation, "Repent, and believe in the Gospel," or the adage, "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you must return."
