Fr. Rob Adams, of Pikeville’s St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, leads a service in the University of Pikeville Chapel for Ash Wednesday on Feb. 17. Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent, a season of fasting and prayer, and takes place 46 days before Easter Sunday. During the service, the pastor sprinkled repentance ashes onto the heads of participants to symbolize the dust from which God made man.
