Ash Wednesday at Piccadilly Market

St James’s Church clergy were out in force today at Piccadilly Market “ashing” members of the public… plus a number of market traders. Lent starts today and Christians traditionally receive on their forehead the sign of the Cross in ash.

“It is a sign of our connection to the earth, a reminder of our death, and a chance to start again.”
