On Ash Wednesday, February 26, St. David’s Episcopal Church joined many other churches nationwide and worldwide in offering Ashes-to-Go, where people could receive the traditional ashes outside the church sanctuary without attending a church service. Nearly 50 people drove through the circular drive in front of St. David’s to receive the ashes in the convenience of their own car. Ashes were also offered outside the Moose Lodge on Dearborn Street. Reverend Vickie McDonald said, “Ashes-to-Go is about taking spirit, belief and belonging from behind church doors and into people’s lives wherever they are.” Karen Brinkman, one of the licensed ministers who helped administer the cross of ashes to people who came in their car, said, “People were so pleased they could receive the ashes at a convenient time for them. They found it gave them joy to reconnect with their faith and to find peace they could take with them throughout their day,” she said. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, leading to Easter Sunday on April 12. All are always welcome at St. David’s Church, 401 S. Broadway.
