Other opportunities for the Sacrament of Reconciliation

Always, by appointment with me.

Those of us on the Bishop Barron Sacraments course last night, where the topic was this Sacrament, heard him say that in Seminary he was taught when a priest is asked if a Confession could be heard, “The answer is simply and always, YES, even if the priest’s life is at risk.”

And at St. Willibrord’s in the Church:

Shrove Tuesday 4pm-6pm 

Ash Wednesday 5pm-5:45

And finally, offer 2 minutes of your time as an expression of Thanksgiving
