Ashes on the Fly to be offered at Atlanta Airport

On Wednesday, March 1, the Episcopal Chaplain to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport will provide Ashes on the Fly to employees and passengers at the world’s busiest airport.
March 1 is Ash Wednesday, the beginning this year of the Christian season of Lent.
Ideally, Christians who observe the penitential season of Lent participate in full liturgies on Ash Wednesday. However, for those whose work or travel requires them to be in the airport on that day Chaplain Mote will offer ashes to be imposed on the forehead to provide them an opportunity to express humility, confess mortality, and mark the beginning of a holy Lent.
From 7 a.m. until noon, the Reverend Dr. Donna S Mote will be near the entrance of the main security checkpoint in the domestic terminal. In the afternoon hours, Chaplain Mote will offer the imposition of ashes at the centerpoint of Concourse E and later in the atrium of Concourse F.
The Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta includes 115 worshiping communities in middle and north Georgia. More at
