ASHES FOR TOMORROW’S CEREMONIES

Cooperstown’s Clergy

Burns Palms For Lent

“In recognition of our common Christian heritage,” Cooperstown’s clergy gathered at noon today on the steps of St. Mary’s “Our Lady of the Lake” Catholic Church to burn palms saved from last year’s Palm Sunday. The ashes will be used tomorrow at Ash Wednesday services that signal the start of Lent, the season of repentance leading up to Easter.
