Ash Wednesday taken to the streets in Bethel

Three Bethel churches are teaming up to allow people to take part in Ash Wednesday in non-church locations.  First Congregational Church of Bethel interim Pastor Laura Westby says Ashes To Go was a success last year, that the Houses of Worship are expanding the traditional start of Lent.

 

Westby says in a world that is changing at lightning speed, this fills a need to offer the traditional gifts of faith in non-traditional ways  She hopes to reach those who have lost their connection to a church, have never participated before or are unable to attend a traditional church service.

 

Ashes to Go will be available from 7 to 9 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Molten Java, 213 Greenwood Avenue.

 

Ashes to Go will also be available from 8 to 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Jacqueline’s, 138 Greenwood Avenue.
