PARISH PENITENTIAL SERVICE

Evening of Love and Forgiveness

On Wednesday, March 21 at 7.30 pm in Holy Rosary Church, there will be a Penitential Service in place of Mass. All the priests of the parish will be present and with you, the People of God, we will reflect on our sinfulness and our need to say sorry to God and to each other.

Mindful that Pope Francis is encouraging us to say ‘Please’, ‘Thank you’ and ‘I’m sorry’ often, this unique celebration of the Sacrament of Confession or Reconciliation will afford us the opportunity to say sorry for our sins. The priests will stand at the front of the altar and you will be invited to come forward, after we have recited together an Act of Sorrow, to say ‘I am sorry for my sins’, and if there is something in particular you wish to mention you may then do so. The priest will then give you absolution and you will return to your seat. This is not the occasion for in depth conversation about issues in your life that you may wish to talk about. Please come back on another occasion if you wish to have such a conversation. We hope that many people who have not been to confession for some time will see in this ‘Evening of Love and Forgiveness’ an opportunity to return to the sacramental life of the church and to celebrate the Paschal Mystery the following Holy Week with renewed vigour and faith.
