Local churches offer ashes on-the-go for Ash Wednesday


DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - Today is Ash Wednesday, marking the start of the Lenten season.

If you didn't have time to go to mass or church service to receive ashes, several churches in the area were offering Ashes on the Go.

Belmont United Methodist Church offered the on-the-go ashes Wednesday for people who were either too busy or didn't want to go into church. A short prayer is said and the ashes are marked on the person's forehead.

Ashes to Go is a trend that's been growing across the country in the past few years with several churches across the country offering the service.
