Police have identified the victim of a Washington County shooting that happened near two churches just as Ash Wednesday services were getting underway.
Ash Wednesday at Mount Saint Peter Parish in New Kensington. The faithful receive the ashen symbol of the cross at a church that dates back 123 years.
With KDKA Radio’s Bill Rehkopf out sick, Joe DeStio got a chance to sit in the air chair and drive you home on the Wednesday edition of the KDKA Afternoon News.
Not everyone could get to church today to celebrate Ash Wednesday, so one local church leader answered the call by taking the ashes to the people.
Along with the Ash Wednesday services, you have probably seen or smelled a fish fry in your neighborhood. KDKA’s Rick Dayton visited one church today where a group of retirees have been at it for a very long time.
The Lenten season is upon us; and if you’re thinking about having fish for dinner, you’re in luck. Many churches, volunteer fire departments and other organizations all around the area schedule these popular fundraisers through Good Friday! We put together this fish fry guide to help you find the nearest place to grab the catch of the day!
