Parishioners in New Haven will be given the option to receive “Ashes to Go” tomorrow for the Christian holiday after the blizzard trapped people in their homes for a few days.
The New Haven Register reports that clergy from Trinity Lutheran Church will be around the city offering ashes on the street outside of locations, including their building at 292 Orange St. and at Union Station, on Ash Wednesday.
The “Ashes to Go” concept started with a few congregations, including St. John’s Episcopal Church in St. Louis back in 2007, according to ashestogo.org
Other towns in Connecticut offering Ashes to Go tomorrow, according to ashestogo.org, including Bethel, Hartford and Milford.
