Newtown United Methodist Church is trying what Reverend Stephen Volpe describes as “something that isn’t new, but is new to us” this year for Ash Wednesday.

On February 14, Volpe will be in the church parking lot, at 92 Church Hill Road, from 7 to 8:30 am.

During that time he will distribute ashes to anyone who would like them.

“It is a drive-through Ash Wednesday event open to all people regardless of church affiliation or lack thereof,” he said, adding all are welcome.
