St. Joseph Parish
Advent Penance Service Reminder (12/11)
Msgr. Yargeau and Fr. Campoli will join us in Saint Joseph Church on Sunday, December 15, at 4pm for our Advent Communal Celebration of the Sacrament of Penance. Please join us in this wonderful graced and God-given opportunity to celebrate the Lord’s loving forgiveness and to prepare yourself well for the great Feast of Christ’s birth. It is hoped that many who have been away from the Sacraments for a long time will take advantage of this opportunity to experience God’s unconditional love. With that in mind, you will find a Guide to making a thorough examination of conscience and a good confession: Examination of Conscience.
As Pope Francis recently said; “You may feel ashamed to tell your sins, but as our mothers and our grandmothers used to say, it is better to be red once than yellow a thousand times. We blush once but then our sins are forgiven and we go forward.”
