Day of Confession, 2016

February 12, 2016

Our Division, along with Archbishop Richard Smith in Edmonton, invites you to participate in the Day of Confession on Wednesday, February 17, 2016. This annual day was instituted during the Year of Faith in 2013. Pope Francis has called upon each of us to live mercy. “Turning our gaze to God, merciful Father, and to our brothers and sisters in need of mercy, means focusing our attention on the essential contents of the Gospel: Jesus, Mercy made flesh.” 

You are again invited to a day of great grace during the season of Lent 2016, in this, the Jubilee Year of Mercy
