I've always had an affinity for Ash Wednesday. Mainly because my name is Ashley. But also because of what it means. It's the beginning of Lent - 40 days before Easter. It's a time of drawing closer to God in the Christian religion. If you see some people walking around with a grey spot of ashes on their head, it means they attended an Ash Wednesday service and were marked with the ashes. Because it's on a Wednesday, people who work might find it hard to get to their parish' services. So, here's a list of Evansville and surrounding area services from the Diocese of Evansville.
