A cross is lifted before it is placed atop the bell tower of Trinity Lutheran Church downtown on Shrove Tuesday or Fat Tuesday to mark the begining of Lent season. It is the second year that the church has placed the cross atop the church. The cross replaces a star (at right) which was placed there at the start of the Advent season. Christians use lent to remember why Christ died on the cross, and to prepare for Easter, Orlando, Tuesday, February, 5, 2008.
