SHORT ON TIME?
All Saints’ Episcopal Church will be providing a new service for this year’s Ash Wednesday observances on February 26 – “Ashes to go.”
In addition to the regular imposition of ashes in church services at 12:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. in All Saints’ Episcopal Church, 651 Eucalyptus Avenue, Vista, drivers can pass through the church parking lot from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. to receive the ashes.
Ashes may be imposed upon the heads of participants in the Ash Wednesday services as a sign of mortality and penitence. The imposition of ashes has been practiced on Ash Wednesday since the ninth century.
