BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A local church wants to make sure the faithful can participate in a ritual on a day they might not be able to make it to services.
This year, Ash Wednesday falls on Valentine's Day, so Emmanuel Lutheran Church will provide the anointing of ashes right on the street.
Starting at 7:30 a.m. the church and Pastor Dawn Wilder will provide the ashes near the Kern County courts building on L Street.
The church will also lead a brief liturgy.
