By Martha Nakimuli

Christians today commemorate Ash Wednesday, marking the beginning of the 40 days of the lent period ending on Easter Sunday.

Msgr. John Wynand Katende, the public relations official of Kampala archdiocese, said Lent is a period of self-examination, repentance prayer and helping the disadvantaged.

Many believers have converged to their respective churches. Three services have been organised at Christ the King Church in Kampala with the latest at 1:00pm.
