Ash Wednesday

Today is Ash Wednesday which marks the start of the holy season of Lent, a time for reflection and repentance in preparation for the celebration of Easter. 

On this day for centuries Christians have received a cross of ashes on the face as a reminder of their mortal failings and an invitation to receive God’s forgiveness.

To help us mark this day Premier’s Northern Correspondent Ian Britton has been to meet the Right Reverend Paul Butler, Bishop Of Durham.
