VERONA — On Ash Wednesday, Feb. 14, from 6:30-9 a.m., St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, 4897 Old Oneida Road, will offer drive-through ashes.

Those who are not able to attend a worship service that day can follow the signs in the parking lot and receive a cross of ashes on their forehead without getting out of the car. St. Peter’s will also offer drivers and passengers a complimentary cup of coffee.

Ashes are a symbol of human brokenness and the need for forgiveness and healing. St. Peter’s will provide information on the meaning of the ashes to drivers and passengers.

Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent, a Christian season of contemplation and reflection consisting of the 40 days minus Sundays leading up to Easter. St. Peter’s will also offer traditional Ash Wednesday worship services at noon and 7 p.m.
