Ashes to ashes; St. Patrick’s holds Ash Wednesday mass

Kevin Rodriguez, 2, and his father Armando, get ashes placed on their foreheads by Catholic Priest Chris Frazer during Wednesday evening’s Spanish Ash Wednesday services at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Grass Valley. St. Patrick’s Church held three Ash Wednesday services with hundreds of parishioners attending each service. Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent that signifies fasting and repentance, symbolic of the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert.
