Ashes to Go keeps tradition going in Castle Rock

Posted

Castle Rock residents with busy schedules still had a chance to observe Ash Wednesday on March 6 through the annual “Ashes to Go” event hosted by local churches in downtown Castle Rock.

For the fourth year, clergy stood at Fourth and Wilcox streets to offer ashes for anyone who wanted to stop by. More than 100 people did. Among them was 18-year-old Jonathan Brooks, who said he'd never attended the event before but it was the reason he was able to participate that afternoon.

Pastor Julie McNitt and Sister Carol Weaver from Well of Hope Lutheran in Castle Rock, along with Vicar Janet Fullmer from St. Philip in the Field in Sedalia said the event allows people of various religious backgrounds to express unity. Christ's Episcopal Church in Castle Rock also hosts the event.

“It's a sign of a coming together,” Fullmer said. “It isn't our differences that we're paying attention to.”
