It’s Ash Wednesday marking the first day of Lent.
It's also the reason you may see people who participate in services for Ash Wednesday wearing ashes on their foreheads.
But for those who don't have a chance to get to a service today, some churches around the D.C. region are bringing the ashes to you.
Through "Ashes to Go," ashes are being given out at all sorts of places Wednesday including Metro stops, coffee shops, and park-and-rides around the D.C. region.
Will "Communion to Go” be next?
