This Ash Wednesday, March 2, Faithbridge Presbyterian Church, 10930 College in Frisco, will be offering “Ashes-to-Go" and prayers for those who may not have time for a traditional worship service on a busy workday — or a church home at which to mark the beginning of the season of Lent.


Pastor Cheryl Taylor will be out in front of the church from 12 to 1 p.m. and again from 5 to 6 p.m. (weather permitting) to greet people, administer ashes and offer prayers.  Enter the church parking lot from College and exit out onto Hillcrest.


“If you need a little Jesus in your life, we’re here for you -- offering lots of love and no judgement,” Rev. Taylor said.  “After all, the holy can’t be confined to the walls of the church.  Jesus met people on the streets; he blessed and prayed for them on the streets.  We’re called to follow his example.”


The imposition of ashes, applied to the forehead in the sign of the cross, is an ancient tradition celebrated throughout the Christian faith.  It symbolizes both our mortality and the hope we have in Jesus Christ.  It marks the beginning of the season of Lent, a time of preparation for the celebration of Easter.


If you would like to join the congregation for a more traditional Ash Wednesday service, one will be held at 7 p.m. that evening in the sanctuary.
