This year the Ashes to Go ministry has been expanded into an ecumenical event on the campus of Tarleton State University in Stephenville. On Ash Wednesday, March 5, the Rev. Curt Norman, rector of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 595 N. McIlhaney, Stephenville, will take part in an ecumenical service on the campus.
At 3 pm prayers and Imposition of Ashes will be offered by the Tarleton Episcopal Campus Ministry, the Tarleton Catholic Campus Ministry, and Tarleton Wesley (Methodist campus ministry) in front of the Thompson Student Center.
In recent years, many denominations have participated in the ministry of Ashes to Go, where ashes are taken out to the people on Ash Wednesday. This ministry is in addition to traditional Ash Wednesday services in churches. For the past two years, Norman has offered Ashes to Go on the campus of Tarleton.
