A Word from the Pastor
Have you been to Confession this Lenten Season? We offer many opportunities to go to Confession throughout this season. We have our regular times throughout the week: Monday, after 9:15am Mass, Wednesday from 6:30pm to 8:00pm, Friday during Stations of the Cross, from 7:00pm to 7:30pm and Saturday from 3:30pm to 4:45pm. Then we have our annual Lenten Penance Service on Tuesday, March 18th at 4:00pm and Wednesday, March 19th at 7:00pm. We have our priests and Dominican priests helping with Confession those nights. Holy Week Confessions will have all three of our priests available to hear your Confession on Monday and Wednesday. On Good Friday, we will have Confessions after the Living Stations, the Celebration of Our Lord’s Passion and Traditional Stations. All the Confessions and Penance Services will be held in the church.
