St. David’s Episcopal Church in downtown Austin provided a noontime religious service on Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent for Christians, called Ashes To Go. Standing on the corner of 6th St. and Congress Ave. ministers provided a short prayer and ashes for those wanting the service. “We’re not trying to impose our theology on anyone. It’s here if they want it.”said Rev. Billy Tweedie, here praying with Andy Turner. “I usually go to church for this, but this morning I slept too late.” said Turner who was thankful for the service.
