Caption Only: Christians mark Ash Wednesday

An Episcopal priest places ashes on the forehead of Kylee Jones, 4, during an Ash Wednesday service at St. Stephens Episcopal Church in West Valley City. Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the Lenten season, a 40-day period of introspection and penance leading up to Holy Week and Easter, celebrated in Catholic and many Protestant churches.
