SHROVE TUESDAY IS 17 FEBRUARY.  Confessions will be heard between 6.00 and 7.00 PM.  It is time now to begin your preparation for a thorough and good personal confession on Shrove Tuesday to more richly participate in the communal rites of Ash Wednesday.  If it has been a while since your last confession, or you have never made one, you might want to take advantage of this Sacrament to clean up any spiritual issues which compromise your relationship with God, your neighbor, or creation itself.  If you need help or direction in your preparation, please speak to Fr Parker by calling the church office to arrange a time to meet.  About private confession: “All may, some should, none must.”
