The Rev. Michael Ahrensfield anoints parishioners with the sign of the Cross during an Ash Wednesday service at Ss. Peter & Paul Church in Lehighton this morning. Today marks the beginning of the Lenten season, which, through the three tenants of prayer, fasting and almsgiving, serves as preparation for Easter, the most holy liturgical feast of the Catholic calendar.
