TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - As the Pope speaks to the faithful around the world, today marks Ash Wedesnday and the start of Lent for Catholics in Tucson as well.

There are several services going on throughout the city today, those include ash ceremonies in the morning and full masses in the evening.

In addition, St. Philips in the Hills Episcopal church offered "Ashes to go."

Members of the church visited several locations in Tucson to mark the foreheads of interested passers-by with ashes.
