On Ash Wednesday, March 1, an ecumenical team will offer blessings to morning commuters at train stations and university campuses across Edmonton. People who choose to receive ashes will be marked with a cross on their forehead as a sign of God’s grace and forgiveness.
Ashes to Go has been a Lenten tradition in the Edmonton diocese for seven years. Look for purple-vested teams offering Ashes to Go between the hours of 6 am and 9 am at the Churchill, Southgate and Century Park LRT stations; on the NAIT campus, from 8 am to 12 pm; and the University of Alberta Main Campus, from 11 am to 1 pm.
