Advent -A Time for Confession
I would like to invite everyone to participate in the merciful Sacrament of Reconciliation to prepare for Christmas. I will hear confessions at St. Mary’s, Bloomington on Monday evenings during Advent from 5:00-6:00 p.m. , and at St. John’s and St. Mary Help of Christian Churches 20 minutes before the weekend Masses. There will be Communal Reconciliation with individual confessions at 7:30 p.m. at the following places and dates:
St. Mary Church, Bloomington, December 11
St. Charles Church on Tuesday, December 17.
St. Clement, Lancaster on Wednesday, December 18, at 7:00 p.m.
Please check the bulletin for other times for individual reconciliation. Please share this invitation of God’s mercy with others who may not read our bulletin and encourage them to receive this powerful sacrament.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation:
· Imparts the love of God (CCC 1424)
· Is the sacrament of forgiveness (CCC 1424)
· Restores us to God’s grace (CCC 1468)
· Brings about a “spiritual resurrection” and the restoration of the dignity and blessings of the life of the children of God (CCC1468)
