This church in Galway is offering busy sinners drive-thru Ash Wednesday services.

According to the , the pastoral council in Glenamaddy felt they needed to adapt to suit the needs of people.

So they've decided to offer locals the chance to receive ashes without even leaving the comfort of their cars.

They report, that this Ash Wednesday, parishioners can "swing in one gate, the padre does the necessary as you wait in your tractor or car, and you exit another gate. It runs from 8am to 9.30am outside Glenamaddy church".

If that wasn't enough, there's also a drive-thru Lenten Petition box on the grounds of Glenamaddy Church.
