Student group hosts Ash Wednesday Mass at campus chapel

The Catholic Student Association of Midland (CSAM) welcomed all to an Ash Wednesday Mass, yesterday in the Dollye Neal Chapel, on the Midland College main campus. Father Kumar from St. Ann's Catholic Church presided over the mass

"Ash Wednesday - the first day of Lent in Western Christianity - derives its name from the practice of blessing ashes made from palm branches blessed on the previous year's Palm Sunday, and placing them on the heads of participants to the accompaniment of the words 'Repent, and believe in the Gospel' or 'Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.'"
