Today is Ash Wednesday — the traditional beginning of Lent.
Here in Westport, apparently, it’s also the beginning of the use of QR codes to advertise the special day.
Whether or not St. Luke’s is the 1st church in the world to embrace QR technology* or not — and it very well may be — the 11th Commandment still stands: Thou shalt not text in the pews.
*QR codes — like those shown above — are those bizarre-looking designs which, when put into your cell phone, exhibit gobs of information about whatever is being described or advertised (in this case, Ash Wednesday). NOTE: You need a QR code reader app to access all that info.
