Local Christians observe Ash Wednesday
DeKALB – For the next 40 days, Kassandra Salgado won’t be eating pancakes for breakfast.
Salgado, a parishioner at the Newman Catholic Student Center and a sophomore at Northern Illinois University, plans to give up pancakes and pray the rosary every day in observance of Lent, a Christian time of remembrance and penance. Lent began Wednesday with Ash Wednesday.
“It’s important because it’s the start of the Lenten season, which is when we get to grow in our faith,” Salgado said.
