The New Confessional Is Ready!
St. Joseph’s has a new confessional, located in the narthex. Clergy will be hearing confessions for a half hour before every Sunday Mass, starting the First Sunday of Advent — this coming Sunday. That means that confession will be available before every Mass on the parish calendar! Take advantage of this opportunity — Christmas is right around the corner, and there is no better way to prepare for the coming of the Lord.
Has it been a long time since you've been to confession?
