Lenten Penance Service, Tuesday, April 8 @ 7 PM
J ust a reminder that we will have a Penance Service with individual Confessions on Tuesday, April 8th at St. Mary’s at 7 PM. We plan to have 10 Confessors. We will do our best to complete the Celebration of the Sacrament of Penance / Reconciliation by 8:00 PM. If you or your family need to leave after you have celebrated the Sacrament, that is clearly understandable. Just make your own thanksgiving for God's grace of forgiveness.
Pope Francis lately has emphasized the Sacrament: "Everyone say to himself: ‘When was the last time I went to confession?’ And if it has been a long time, don't lose another day! Go, the priest will be good. And Jesus, (will be) there, and Jesus is better than the priests – Jesus receives you. He will receive you with so much love! Be courageous, and go to confession," urged the Pope on Feb. 19.
