Several clergy belonging to the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth will be offering “Ashes to Go” in addition to the traditional Ash Wednesday worship services this year.
Ashes to Go began almost a decade ago when some Episcopal churches decided to take the Ash Wednesday ritual outside the walls of their church bring it to the people.
Churches were bringing ashes to people in diverse places such as train stations, city plazas, coffee shop parking lots and even on the sidewalks of downtown.
So this upcoming Ash Wednesday, Ashes to Go will be offered in several places including Fort Worth, Decatur, Granbury and Keller.
