Happy Lent, everyone!

During this season, our thoughts turn more specifically to working on our faith and proper balance in our lives. We often take up special practices of giving up something that we don’t truly need, being generous to others, and working on prayer.

One of the other things that comes up during lent is the idea of going to confession. It’s often not the most comfortable thing for us to think about! However, confession is a great gift of Jesus to the Church, where we can receive the assurance of his forgiveness.

If you wish to learn more about the sacrament:
