Catholics began the journey of Lent Feb. 22, gathering for Ash Wednesday Masses across the archdiocese.
Although it is not a holy day of obligation, it is the traditional way to begin preparing for Easter, and Masses were crowded at noon at several churches, including St. Mary Magdalene, St. Margaret Mary and Our Lady of Guadalupe, all in Omaha.
Judy Szaro, a member of Ss. Peter and Paul Parish in Omaha, said she goes to Ash Wednesday Mass because the ashes remind her that this life will end, and it is important to focus on things of heaven.
