The Beauty of Confession
We're coming up on the penultimate week of Lent, the season that defines us as followers of Christ through the Paschal Mystery (the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus).

Confession is a beautiful thing!
If you, or someone you know has been away from the Church, invite them home this Lenten Season. Visitation's
Communal Penance is on April 9th at 2 and 7pm. We'll join together as a responding to God's mercy. If it's been a while - or even if it hasn't! - consider taking this opportunity to experience God's grace and mercy again!

to help prepare.
God never tires of forgiving us; we are the ones who tire of seeking his mercy.
