Confessions ...

It is one the great delights and privileges of a priest to be able to offer people the Sacrament of Penance.

Here at St Ann's, as well as the usual times for weekly Confessions on Saturday morning and evening, I am very pleased to be available for Confession after each of the Masses on the first Sunday of the month.

This time is especially helpful, I feel, as people have already come to Mass and don't need to make another extra trip to come to Confession.

It is so uplifting for me as a priest to see parishioners, including parents with their children, queueing up for Confession after Sunday Mass.

Times for Confession:

10.30 am to 11.30 am
5.00 pm to 6.00 pm

First Sunday of the month: After every Mass

And at call

This is a great blessing, Fr M, and your parishioners are blessed to have such a devoted and committed priest. Thank God for the Sacrament of Confession - and for holy priests to administer it!

I agree Joseph, when there are
so few Priests to administer
the Sacraments why are we so
slow to go to Confession?!

I'm sorry but I'm afraid I don't quite understand your comment.

slow to go to Confession, just
me then!!!

Think I was having a senior
moment when I posted my
original comment, missed a
bit out, should have read
....administer the Sacraments
we should make the most of
this privilege & not
be so slow in going to
Confession! Maybe people are
not slow, maybe it is just
me getting that impression,
if so I apologise! Does that
make sense Fr Miceal?
