Drive-through ashing on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 14, will be offered from 7-9 a.m. and 4-6 p.m. at Delta United Methodist Church, 6285 Hawkins Corners Road in Lee, and 7-9 a.m. at Verona United Methodist Church, 5694 E. Main St. In addition, an Ash Wednesday worship service will be offered at 7 p.m. at the Verona church, said Pastor Patricia Hubman, who also is pastor of the Delta church.

The drive-through ashing, providing a cross of ashes on foreheads without people having to leave their vehicles, is for those who may be too busy or otherwise unable to attend a worship service on Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. It is a 40-day period, not counting Sundays, of reflection and preparation prior to Easter.
