Seen Around Town: Ashes to Go


Ash Wednesday

Christ Episcopal Church of Bloomfield and Glen Ridge is out this morning participating in Ashes to Go,  giving ashes to commuters at the Bloomfield train station.

Today is Ash Wednesday and the first day of Lent — 46 days of reflection and penitence that precede Easter — for observant Christians.

For those who observe, what are you giving up for Lent?
