Reconciliation Monday

reconcilliation Monday, March 30th is reconciliation Monday. All Catholic churches throughout the Archdiocese of New York as well as the dioceses of Brooklyn/Queens and Rockville Center(Long Island) will have a priest available for confessions from 3-9 pm. This is a wonderful opportunity to prepare yourself for our celebration of Easter by unburdening yourself of any sins that may be weighing you down and thereby opening yourself up to the love and grace of God at this special time of year. Go to your own parish, one nearby, or one where nobody could possibly know you just go and bring a friend. What better gift to share with someone you care about.
