WEDNESDAY EVENING cONFESSIONS - 03/20/2019

Wednesday Evening Confessions On Wednesday, March 13th, March 20th, March 27th, April 3rd, April 10th, and April 17th we will be having Confessions here at Saint Theresa’s together with the Catholic parishes and chapels in the Archdiocese of Boston. This outreach is called “The Light is On for You”, and is an effort on the part of our Archdiocese to highlight the importance of the Sacrament of Confession in the life of Catholics and make it as easy as possible for every Catholic to come or to return to this great source of God’s mercy and healing love. You are welcome to come here or to go to any other Catholic parish or chapel. The Archdiocese has set up a website: www.TheLightIsOnForYou.org, with lots of great material and videos to help you prepare. Please make plans to come yourself and please invite others to take advantage of this great opportunity to be reconciled and begin anew your journey in faith this Lent. Here at Saint Theresa’s, the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available in the Chapel from 6:30—8:00 P.M. on Wednesday evenings during Lent. There will also be Exposition, Adoration and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament during this time for anyone who wishes to spend some time in prayer with Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.
