POLL: Are you going to get ashed on Ash Wednesday?

Next week we'll celebrate Ash Wednesday, which is the practice of putting ashes on the foreheads of penitent believers as a reminder of their physical return to dust (“ashes to ashes”). 

Spokane Faith & Values is compiling a list of Ash Wedesday services. Send your service times to tracysimmons@spokanefavs.com, or leave it in the comment section below.

Meanwhile, readers, we want to know: Are you planning on getting ashed on Feb. 13?
