Wednesday, December 17, 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM
On Wednesday, December 17th from 6:30-9:00pm, St. Patrick will have several priests available to hear confessions. Before going to Confession you should make a review of sins since your last sacramental confession, and should express sorrow for sins, hatred for sins and a firm resolution not to sin again. A helpful pattern for examination of conscience is to review the Commandments of God and the Precepts of the Church, here are some questions to help guide you: Have God and the pursuit of sanctity in Christ been the goal of my life? Have I denied my faith? Have I placed my trust in false teachings or substitutes for God? Did I despair of God's mercy? Have I shown Christlike respect to parents, spouse, and family members, legitimate authorities? Have I been attentive to the religious education and formation of my children? Have I cared for the bodily health and safety of myself and all others? Was I impatient, angry, envious, proud, jealous, revengeful, lazy? Have I forgiven others? Have I been mindful of the poor? Do I accept God's will for me?
