Burning of the Palms

  • As community members watched, and little children helped, Fr. Shaun O’Connor, Pastor of St Mary’s Church in Orange, lighted the old palms from last year to create the ashes to be used in area churches for Ash Wednesday. Following the burning of the palms, members of St. Mary’s and other area churches sat down to a “Fat Tuesday” supper of pancakes and sausages in the Parish Hall. Lent began on Ash Wednesday, March 6 for Christian churches. —Submitted photo
