Mark the first day of lent at one of four services.
Christians mark a 40 day period of reflection and self-denial, just as Jesus did in the desert, before Easter. At some services 'ashing' will be offered, which means marking the sign of the cross in ash on a worshipper's forehead as a symbol of penitence.
