Drive-Thru Ashes for Ash Wednesday

News | February 11, 2021

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lenten journey to Easter for Christians. An online Ash Wednesday service will feature a host of gifted musicians and Pastor Peter Marty preaching. The link will be sent by email at 4 p.m. or available at youtube.com/c/stpaulquadcities.

On this solemn day, if you wish to receive an ashen cross on the back of your hand — a reminder of our frailty and sin — or a small handout with an Ash Wednesday blessing, pull up to the main church door during the designated times to receive your “drive-thru ashen cross.” Pastors, with ash in hand, will be available Wednesday, Feb. 17 from 7-9 a.m., 12-2 p.m., and 5-7 p.m. Receive the sign of the cross on the back of your hand from the seat of your car!

    My heart lifts every time I pull in that drive!!! To see the staff and their welcoming eyes was much needed.
