To commemorate Ash Wednesday on March 5, three Sunnyside pastors are partnering for an outreach called “Ashes on the Go.”
The outdoor event will take place at the corner of Ninth Street and Edison Avenue in Sunnyside from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. next Wednesday, March 5.
At that time and location pastors Katrina Walther of Our Saviour’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, Katie Haney of Sunnyside Presbyterian Church and Pat Beeman of United Methodist Church will provide ashes and a blessing for those who wish to stop by.
Later next Wednesday, an ecumenical Ash Wednesday worship service will be held at 7 p.m. at Sunnyside United Methodist Church, 906 E. Edison Ave.
Sunnyside congregations participating in the service, which is open to the public, include Our Saviour’s Evangelical Lutheran, United Methodist, Sunnyside Presbyterian and Holy Trinity Episcopal churches.
