Where to get your ashes to-go

Ash Wednesday is tomorrow, Wed., Feb. 26, and for some, this means heading to church to get a little cross painted on your forehead. (For everyone else, this is a reminder to not be surprised by the dirt on strangers' foreheads.) But if you're a person on-the-go, you might not have the time or ability to get to church. Or maybe you just don't want to go to church but don't want your grandma to know that.
