Church offering ‘no touching ashes’

With the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday St. John’s Episcopal Church will provide an opportunity for Christians to begin the Lenten season with the imposition of ashes.

“No Hand Touching- Ashes to Go” imposition of ashes will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The imposition will consist of a short prayer and the imposition of ashes. The person administering ashes will wear gloves and follow all safety precautions — no hands will touch the forehead.

All are welcome to attend St. John’s Church, located at the corner of W. Fourth and Lark Streets in Dunkirk.
