    WHAT IS A ‘COMMUNITY PENANCE SERVICE’ AND WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?

     

    A Community Penance Service is when the parish as a community gets together at least twice a year (Lent and Advent) in preparation for individual private Confessions. While a private Confession on a regular Saturday has the benefit of personal preparation in the silence of your heart, there are many advantages in participating in a Community Penance Service:

     

    -You have the comfort of knowing that you are not alone in your sinfulness and that you are a pilgrim among pilgrims.

     

    -It is organized, with appropriate scripture readings and music.

     

     -There will be a thorough examination of conscience to help you remember areas that you might otherwise forget.

     

    -It enhances the community spirit of the parish.

     

    -It recognizes that we are one Church in constant need of conversion.

     

    -And if you do not have a personal priest for Confessions, and would be embarrassed to go to a priest who knows you (and/or who works with you), there are plenty of priests from neighboring parishes and ministries who are present to hear your Confession. You will have a veritable smorgasbord choice of priests. Your anonymity will be maintained.
