Catholic Faithful Gather for Confession on April 10, Be Reconciled Day in the Diocese
April 18, 2019
A steady stream of the faithful came to St. Thomas More Parish in Elgin for confession on Be Reconciled Day, including a few who had come to the parish for the first time.
Men and women patiently prayed and waited in the church before they entered the confessional.
A sign explained the procedure for people who haven’t been  to confession at St. Thomas More or at any church in a while.
Many also entered the chapel for quiet adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
