LITTLE ROCK, AR-- San Damiano Ecumenical Catholic Church and Saint Michaels Church in Little Rock offered 'Ashes on the Go' in the Pleasant Ridge area Wednesday.

The event is designed to give people blessings while they are on the run.

"This is a way to bring the ashes out to the people to make them available to people who couldn't make mass today," said planner Fred Ball.

Leaders say they had a very successful turnout.
