To help make sure faithful, but busy parishioners have a chance to celebrate Ash Wednesday, area clergy from three local churches will be on hand to offer ashes at the Metro-North train station in Fairfield County.

The three, the Rev. Tisha Jermin, of Golden Hill Methodist Church; the Rev./Dr. Geoffrey Hahneman, of St. John’s Episcopal Church; and the Rev. Sara D. Smith, Esquire of United Congregational Church will be on hand at 7:30 a.m. at the Bridgeport train station, offering "Ashes to Go," as part of a national movement.

Started about 11 years in St. Louis, the group offers ashes everywhere from coffee shops and gyms to street corners and hopes to keep the movement growing.
