Church offers ashes to go on Ash Wednesday

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - In case you can't make it to church for Ash Wednesday, Emmanuel Lutheran Church will offer ashes on the street in Downtown Bakersfield. 

Starting at 7:30 am, you can find Pastor Dawn Wilder on "L" Street across the street from Kern County Jury Services Department, administering ashes to the public. 

Emmanuel Lutheran is offering the ashes to go because they recognize the constraints of time many people live under, the church said. 

She will also lead a brief liturgy.
