If you don't have time to attend Mass, St. David's Episcopal Church in Southfield will offer ashes both inside and outside the church.

Several local churches will be holding special services for Ash Wednesday.

Just drive up and receive your ashes.

LOUIS Today is Ash Wednesday, which marks the first day of Lent and many churches are making it easy for people to receive their ashes and a blessing. It's also the day that lent starts, so you better be thinking of what you're going to give up for those 40 days and 40 nights.

So a year ago, the church held its first ever ashes to go event where 250 people attended.

Senior pastor at Epworth United Methodist Church, Bob Holliday whispers a short prayer as he makes the sign of the cross on a woman's forehead using ashes.

"I was one of those that thought it was kind of irreverent".

St Patrick's church posted about the service on Facebook last night, saying: "Ash Wednesday drive through in Glen'". "I know that I was struggling as to when I could get my ashes today so I appreciate the opportunity to do that while I am getting to work", says Tania Saiz, of White Plains.
