Family Penance Services are Here!

Advent is a season of preparation for the Coming of Christ the King, both in remembrance as the baby in the manger and in His glorious Second Coming. It’s time to get cleaned up for the big event! Often times our plans for the season from shopping to decorating and picking out the perfect outfit overlooks or diminishes the best spiritual detail, a well made confession. This act of penance removes the sin from our old self which can be dark and dreary and replace it with God’s grace which create in us a pure heart radiating Christ’s to the outside world. So as you plan what to wear this Christmas treat yourself to the gift of a new you!

Here is the list of local family penance services in our deanery. There are multiple priests at each location making the lines shorter.
