• Despite a winter storm, Stouffville’s Catholic community turned out for Ash Wednesday Mass at St. Mark’s Parish.
  • Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the season of Lent, a time of alms giving, prayer and fasting.
  • As a public expression of penance and faith, ashes are rubbed in the shape of a cross on the foreheads symbolizing penance, mourning and mortality.
  • Mass was celebrated by Father Tad.
