The Rev. Steve Snieder, pastor of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Sikeston, puts ashes on the forehead of a parishioner during Ash Wednesday Mass. The ashes ritual opens the Catholic Church's solemn period of penitence, sacrifice and reflection leading up to Easter, which this year falls on March 31.
