Busy Catholics in Arlington can get their ashes to go this Ash Wednesday.
A group from St. George’s Episcopal Church in Arlington will be distributing ashes in the Virginia Square Metro Plaza, according to a news release from the church.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent.
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.)
