Ash Wednesday (Catholic/ Christian Protestant / Hispanic)

March 2

Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the 40-day season of Lent, when Christians prepare spiritually for the celebration of Easter. On this day, Catholics and some Protestant denominations will attend a special prayer service, where they will have ashes applied to their foreheads in the shape of a cross. This cross of ashes symbolizes penance, mourning and mortality.

This is a day of fasting and abstinence from meat for Catholics over the age of 14.
