Cindy Rachila of Mountain Top prays after receiving ashes on Ash Wednesday at St. Mary’s Church of the Immaculate Conception, Our Lady of Fatima Parish, in Wilkes-Barre. The traditional ceremony marked the beginning of Lent, a 40-day period of fasting and reflection many Christians observe before the celebration of Easter.
