Lent: A Time for Confession!
The confession schedule in our parishes is:
Ss. Peter and Paul, Saturday’s from 6:30pm–7:00pm.
St. Joseph Saturday’s from 3:15pm - 4:00pm.
St. Mary Saturday’s from 3:15pm - 4:00pm.
Also, there will be a special confession time in our area held here at Sts. Peter and Paul Church, 24 Hours for the Lord. Priests from our district will be in the confessional from 1:00 p.m. on Friday, March 29, through 9:00 p.m., and resuming at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 30, through 12:00 Noon. Plan to participate in this essential sacrament of Christian life. Be sure to make you “Easter Duty”.
Remember that confession is available to everyone on Tuesdays from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and be-fore and after Sunday Mass.
On Tuesday, March 26, we will celebrate a communal rite of Penance for all the Spanish-speaking faithful. The normal Tuesday Mass will be suspended to make room for this important event. Several priests will be available to hear confessions. Remember, Catholics who receive Communion are obliged to confess their sins at least once a year, hopefully during Lent. Even those who cannot fully enter the sacrament to receive absolution from the priest are invited to turn to the Lord, come to confess your sins, to forgive others, and to pray for forgiveness from our God who is merciful.
