Faith Focus Ash services on the seawall

Posted: Saturday, March 1, 2014 12:00 am

It’s still Mardi Gras, but Lent is coming. The Revs. Susan Kennard and Jeremiah Griffin of Galveston’s Trinity Episcopal Church will offer a unique service they call Ashes-to-Go from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at 21st Street and Seawall Boulevard. There, the priestly pair will administer ashes to faithful passers-by in front of pier that once housed the Balinese Room, offering anointing and prayers for Ash Wednesday.

“With today’s work schedules and general busyness, it isn’t possible for everyone to attend an Ash Wednesday service,” Griffin said. “Ashes-to-Go seeks to meet people where they are; to make the church’s message of repentance and grace accessible to all. Ash Wednesday’s focus is on wrongdoing, transformation and new beginnings.”
