MANY Christians in Honiara took their time yesterday to attend church services purposely to receive the sign of a black cross smudged on their foreheads telling the arrival of Ash Wednesday.

“Ash Wednesday”, a day of fasting, is the traditional first day of Lent in Christianity that occurs 46 days before Easter.

It is understood that during Ash Wednesday annually, a Holy Mass, Service of worship, Divine Service, Divine Liturgy and placing of ashes on the foreheads usually take place being observed by Christians.
