COVINGTON, KENTUCKY (FOX19) -
Most Christians will attend special Ash Wednesday church services across the Tri-State.
This includes students who attend Catholic and other church schools.
For those unfamiliar with the practice, priests and clergy usually place blessed ashes in form of the cross on individuals' foreheads to remind them of mortality, sorrow for sins, change, and forgiveness.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent for Christians.
It is traditionally a time of fasting and prayer in preparation for receiving or reaffirming baptism at Easter. For some Christians, Lent is a time to think about one's life choices and mortality, as well as reflect on life directions.
The practice of marking foreheads with ashes is common among Roman Catholics, Anglicans, Lutherans and Episcopalians here in Cincinnati.
On Wednesday, members of the public are also welcome to stop by these locations in Wyoming and Covington to receive "Ashes on the Go."
Those receiving the blessing will pull up to the curb and roll down their window. A brief prayer is said, then clergy members mark their foreheads with the ashes.
Most say the blessing isn't a replacement for the traditional Ash Wednesday service, but most clergy agree that it can only expand awareness of the day.
Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent. Church officials say it's a time to prepare for the remembrance of Jesus' death and the celebration of his resurrection.
'Ashes on the Go' are available at the following locations:
