'Drive thru' ashes in Florida

Florida churches offering 'drive thru' ashes for Ash Wednesday




STUART, Fla. (WPEC) - Catholics and Christians across the country will stop for a blessing on their way to work this Ash Wednesday. Here in southern Florida a few churches are catering to busy believers on the go.

St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Stuart is offering “drive thru” ashes for those whose schedule doesn’t permit stopping for mass.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent for Catholics, the 40 day liturgical period of prayer and fasting. This happens six weeks before Easter, which Christians celebrate as the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The drive thru at St. Joseph’s is located in front of the Family Center from 6:30 to 8 o’clock Wednesday morning. Trinity United Methodist Church in Jensen Beach will also be holding a drive thru for ashes from 10 AM until 1 PM this Ash Wednesday.
