ADVENT PENITENTIAL SERVICE

ADVENT PENITENTIAL SERVICE

time 7:00 pm

December 11, 2017

Monday, December 11th, beginning at 7 pm.  We encourage everyone to receive this Sacrament of God’s mercy and forgiveness, and to celebrate Christmas with joy and renewed hearts.  Through this privileged encounter with God we are offered forgiveness, healing, made whole again and restored to intimacy with God.  To prepare for this graced encounter with Jesus, we should begin by asking the Holy Spirit to give us insight into our innermost being so that we can discover what needs to be changed in our life and relationships, express a true and sincere sorrow for our failures, be desirous of changing our life, confess our faults in the sacrament of reconciliation and do the penance assigned.  Several priests will be available to hear individual confessions.
