Ash Wednesday

Above, Sophia Villano of Christ the King Regional School, Haddonfield, prays after receiving ashes during the school Mass. Left, Bishop Dennis Sullivan began the 40 Days of Lent with a distribution of ashes at Camden’s Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. Calling this season a “spiritual springtime,” he urged all to “raise yourself for better Christian living, as Jesus raised himself” at Easter.
