Lent begins with Ash Wednesday

Christians in Door and Kewaunee counties begin their Lenten journeys Wednesday with special services. Many will be marked with ashes on their foreheads as a symbol of their repentance entering one of the holiest times of the year. Interim Pastor Ken Kratz of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Kewaunee says the season of Lent is a wonderful time to remember God’s love.

Service times vary from church to church to commemorate the beginning of Lent, which ends on Easter Sunday on April 21st.
