Advent Reconciliation

The Church asks that practicing Catholics avail themselves of the sacrament of Reconciliation at least once a year, during Lent, in preparation for Easter. Lots of people also like to go to Confession during Advent. If you would like to go to Confession, remember that Confessions are heard every Saturday at 3:30 pm in the Baptistery (under the Bell Tower). Because December 24th is Christmas Eve Confessions will not be heard on Saturday December 24th. )
