BUFFALO, NY-- Today is Ash Wednesday ... marking the start of the Lenten season.
And this year, Christians in the City of Buffalo had a new way to receive their ashes.
Those unable to attend services today, were offered "Ashes on the Run" - by walking or driving by the parking of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Buffalo. It's the first time the church has offered something like this before. They say it's a good way to share their faith with everyone.
"We just though it was another way for us to share our faith in a public way," said Rev. Lee Miller of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. "For those that couldn't get here at regular times, to let them know something was offered for them as well."
