Ashes To Go – Was a Success!!

A heartfelt “Thank You” to all of the day’s many participants!

The first-ever “Ashes To Go” offered at the parish afforded 20 Christians the Imposition of Ashes. 30 Christians total were imposed at St. James’-Downingtown for the beginning of the Season of Lent, including those who attended the noontime, live-streamed Eucharistic service.

 Thank you parking lot volunteers: Tim, Rich, Dan, and John
