Photo Album: Ashes to Go

Fr. Bernie Poppe and the Rev. Chris Heckert of Morrow Memorial Methodist in Maplewood gave "Ashes to Go" at the Maplewood Train Station during morning rush hour on Ash Wednesday, March 5, 2014.

St. George's was one of at least 36 congregations in the Diocese of Newark to send clergy and lay people to train stations, bus stops, coffee shops, shopping centers and street corners to offer ashes and a brief prayer to commuters and pedestrians who wished to participate.
