Ash Wednesday

























These children and the woman are coming out of the church in San Fernando, Cali.
They went in to get their ash crosses stamped upon their foreheads, to signal the beginning of Lent season.
Colombia is still a very catholic country although the power of the church has waned in the past 20 years due to an impressive effort from American-style protestant pastors to gain a foothold on the spiritual needs of the population.
