The Episcopal and Methodist churches are offering "Ashes to Go" at area public transportation stops.
Ash Wednesday of course marks the start of the holy season of Lent for Christians.
St. John's Christ and St. James Episcopal churches are part of a new nationwide movement to practice Ash Wednesday in public places.
The churches' next "Ashes to Go" stop is at the the Battlefield Mall bus stop from noon until 1:30 pm.
More information about the Ashes to Go movement can be found at www.AshesToGo.org.
