Lent is a time of repentance - a time for us to be reconciled with God due to our sins and failures. A few weeks ago on Wednesday March 4th during the evening set aside for confessions throughout the diocese I had the opportunity to hear confessions for 3 straight hours! This was a wonderful opportunity for many to return to the sacrament of penance to receive the grace and mercy of God. There are still many opportunities during this Lent for us to receive this same grace and mercy. As always confessions are heard here at the parish on Saturdays prior to the 5pm from 3:34-4:45pm.
We will also have an opportunity to go to confession this Sunday 3/22 at 2pm here at IC. Our Cluster in association with Our Lady of Mt. Carmel will be celebrating our Lenten-Penance Service in the church.
A number of visiting priest confessors will be joining us and we are grateful for their presence. Fr. John Sullivan & Fr. Joe O'Donnell from OLMC will be here - joining them will be Fr. Zach Kawlaec from St. Mary's Chardon, Fr. Stephen Kaminski from St Mary Magdalene, Fr. Steve Spisak from St. Anslem Chesterland and Fr. Max Cole from St. Mary's Berea. We hope you can take advantage of these remaining opportunities to celebrate God's love for us!
