Please encourage others to come to the Penitential Rite and Confessions on Tuesday and to join the prayer life of the community of faith if they have been away for Church for some time. Your kindly and encouraging word is all they may need to return to God and live as a devout Catholic again. Assure them of the Lord’s mercy, goodness, forgiveness and his willingness to help sinners. Remember Jesus is always ready for our return. A good Confession reconciles us to God and to one another. Be missionary for Jesus.
