"Ashes to Go"

Posted at: 02/13/2013 6:20 PM

While most Christians attended services in churches for Ash Wednesday, some priests brought the service to the streets.

Priests from the Episcopal Church of the Ascension on Riverside Street corner of Lake Avenue stood at the corner of Park Avenue and Berkeley Street giving out ashes.

It is called, "Ashes to Go" and it is part of a new nationwide movement by Episcopal church to bring ashes to people and invite them to seek forgiveness and renewal during the 40 days of Lent.
