Rev. Jo-Ann Murphy, dressed in a black cassock, dug her fingers into a small glass goblet containing black, chalky ashes, which are made of burnt palms. She got a good coat before applying it on Gary Sullivan's forehead, making a cross.
“Remember you are dust, and dust you shall return,” said Murphy, an assistant rector at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, located near Peacock Park in Coconut Grove.
“Amen,” said Sullivan, who parked his bike on McFarlane Road.
