FANWOOD, NJ -- Even you’re in a rush on Ash Wednesday, you can get your ashes 'on the go.' The Chelsea at Fanwood is offering an "Ashes To Go Drive-Thru" from 12:00 Noon to 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2020.

Just drive up to the Chelsea’s breezeway at 295 South Avenue in Fanwood, roll down the window and receive ashes from Father Duncan Johnston of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Westfield. You don’t even have to get out of your car.

For Christians, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a season of reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter. is Scotch Plains-Fanwood’s only free daily paper.
