During the season of Lent (through Holy Wednesday), all are encouraged to take advantage of our expanded Confession Schedule:
- Tuesdays at 6p
- Wednesdays at 5p (except on 28 March when it’ll be 7p)
- Thursdays at 6p
- Fridays at 7p
- Saturdays at 3.30p
Catholics are obliged to receive holy communion between Easter and Pentecost. To receive, one must confess any grave sin (i.e. mortal).
Here are the details:
– Canon 920 requires that once we receive our First Holy Communion, we’re obliged to receive holy communion at least once a year, between Easter and Pentecost.
– Canon 916 reminds us that anyone conscious of grave (i.e. mortal) sin may not receive the Eucharist without first having gone to confession.
