The churches participating in “The Light Is ON for You” will have priests available for confession from 6 to 7:00 or 7:30 p.m. Aids for preparing one’s self to receive the sacrament will be available in the churches.
Most other churches will provide extra hours for Catholics to receive this sacrament of forgiveness. Some churches will offer prayer services focused on reconciliation with priests available for confession after penitents have an opportunity to prepare themselves to receive the sacrament.
Bishop Robert W. Muench said in a letter to the people of the Diocese of Baton Rouge that everyone should take the opportunity to go to confession during Lent, no matter how long it has been since receiving God’s grace through this sacrament.
