Trinity Episcopal Church in downtown Tulsa is trying something new in order to meet the demand of members with busy schedules who do not have time to stop in for the Ash Wednesday service.

“Ashes to Go” began last year and has helped usher in a new way for church members to quickly receive a blessing on a very important day in Christianity.

While Rev. Stephen McKee is holding a traditional service inside, Assistant Rector, Rev. Kristi Maulden, is outside praying and blessing those with a limited amount of time.

Rev. Maulden says although the number of people she meets with doesn't amount to a traditional service there is still real value in the “Ashes to Go.” campaign.

“I think we would continue to do this if we only had five people come, because things change for people every year and it's good to be able to be outside and not expecting everyone to come in for once,” Rev. Maulden said.
