Ashes to Go
Christ Episcopal Church and the First Church of Christ in Bethany will offer “Ashes to Go” on Ash Wednesday, February 18th from 8-9am. Rev. Elsa Worth will be ready to offer a quick prayer and the administration of ashes to anyone who would like them, weather permitting. You can drive through for Ashes to Go on the southbound side of Route 63 in front of the carriage shed just before the blinking light in the historical Bethany town center. Many who are unable to get to an Ash Wednesday service either because of scheduling or infirmity appreciate the opportunity to mark the beginning of Lent with this simple ceremony. For those who are able, there will be Ash Wednesday services held at Christ Church (the Bethany church on the west side of Rte 63) on Feb 18 at both 7am and 7pm in the church. All are welcome.
