Metro-North riders can get ‘ashes to go’

Connecticut Post

BRIDGEPORT — Metro-North customers boarding trains Wednesday will see an unusual sight.

At 7:30 a.m. on Ash Wednesday at the Bridgeport train station, the clergy from the three downtown Bridgeport churches will be offering ashes to go.

The Rev. Tisha Jermin, of Golden Hill Methodist Church; the Rev./Dr. Geoffrey Hahneman, of St. John’s Episcopal Church; and the Rev. Sara D. Smith, Esquire of United Congregational Church, will be offering the ashes in “a new approach to a centuries-old Christian tradition.”
