On Ash Wednesday, March 5, the priests from the Episcopal churches of Trumbull: Christ Church, Tashua; Grace Church, Main Street and Trinity Episcopal Church, Nichols will be on the sidewalk near the bus stop outside of Starbuck’s in Trumbull Center from 12:30 to 2 p.m., and apply ashes on the foreheads and offer a quick prayer to any passer-by interested in participating in the Christian tradition of Ash Wednesday.

The event, called “Ashes-to- Go,” is an attempt to reach out to people who may not have time to come into church for the traditional Ash Wednesday service.
