Ash Wednesday is here. And Colonial Church in Prairie Village offered people looking for the traditional imposition of ashes a convenient way to kick off the Lenten season.

As they have done in years past, Colonial clergy Aaron Roberts and Shea Zellweger stood at the church’s entrance by the intersection of 71st Street and Mission Road offering “Drive By Ash Wednesday” blessings. Motorists on their way about town between 7:30 and 10 a.m. could pull into the church’s circle drive and have Roberts deliver the ashes to their foreheads as they sat behind the wheel.
