Ashes to Go | Chalmette, LA
February 26 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
This year, Gethsemane Lutheran Church (2825 Paris Rd., Chalmette) is taking Ash Wednesday to the streets! We are having ASHES TO GO, a drive thru (or walk up as the case may be) for people to receive ashes and communion.
Ash Wednesday, February 26, from 11am to 6pm!
We are offering ashes on the street corner today because that reminder of need, humility, and healing shouldn’t be conﬁned to a church building. We probably need it more when we are in the middle of our daily business! The ashes we receive here are to remind us throughout the day of our need for God, and of God’s call to us.
There is much more to the beginning of Lent than ashes alone, and we encourage you to make time for worship with a community of faith, for the support of others and of the great traditions of faith in our work of repentance and renewal. But God meets us not just in worship, but in the midst of life, and we oﬀer the opportunity to remember our faith to those whose schedules make it hard to stop and pray with others today.
Come and receive ashes and communion! ALL are welcome! For more information, please call 504-271-4254 or email [email protected]
