Before we get to the schedule, we wanted to let you know that non-plastic Q-Tips will be used to place ashes upon a person's forehead. A fresh Q-Tip will be used for each person. All Q-Tips will be burned afterwards in order to properly dispose of the blessed ashes.
The distribution of Ashes will occur at each of these services.
