‘The Light is On For You’ today! This is the annual Advent observance of the Sacrament of Penance in the Diocese of Syracuse, held 4-7 p.m. today, Monday, Dec. 19. Most diocesan churches will be welcoming those seeking to prepare their hearts for Christmas.
Because of the limited number of priests who may be available at a given parish, the diocese advises that you contact your local church to be sure that it will be open for the sacrament that day. You can also ask then about regular schedules for Confession. The diocesan website is a great resource to find a parish and to help you prepare to receive God’s grace and mercy this season.
