As far as I know there is no reason that she cannot receive the ashes tomorrow.

On the Communion item however, I would be tempted to use the inside cover of our missalette that has the guidelines for receiving Communion. Maybe someone else can put it into more delcate words than I am able at this moment.

She is always welcome to go up for a blessing, indicating no communion by placing her arms across her chest, hand to opposite shoulders.

When I lived in NYC, virtually all of my black Protestant friends used to go to receive ashes before work...

Catholic or not, the thought was there and everybody understood it.
