Church to Offer 'Ashes to Go' on Orange Line

Busy Catholics in Vienna and beyond who are traveling the Orange Line on Wednesday can get their ashes to go. 

A group from St. George’s Episcopal Church in Arlington will be distributing ashes in the Virginia Square Metro Plaza for Ash Wednesday, according to a news release from the church. 

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent.

If you travel from Vienna on the Orange Line, or work near the station, representatives of the church will offer the ashes to anyone who wants them from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. and from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

One does not have to be a particular religion to receive the ashes.

The church had a similar program in 2012. (See: Church Offers 'Ashes to Go' at Virginia Square Metro from 2012.)
