These days it seems like everyone is busy, and if you're one of those busy people and also observing Lent, here's a solution for you.

The Lutheran Church of Lafayette is offering ashes in "drive-thru" fashion today (February 14) from 7 am to 6 pm. Ash Wednesday, the day after Mardi Gras, marks the end of Mardi Gras and the beginning of fasting and prayer for many Christians leading up to Easter Sunday.

The faithful who start to observe the Lenten season will be able to get their ashes on the go thanks to the church, located at 301 W Farrel Rd.
