Pope to lead penance service, hear confessions

Catholic World News - March 19, 2014

Pope Francis will lead a penitential liturgy and hear confessions in St. Peter’s Basilica on the evening of March 28.

The service will mark the beginning of “24 hours for the Lord,” an initiative of the Pontifical Council for Promoting New Evangelization that is taking place in St. Peter’s and three other Roman churches.

Catholic News Service reported that 24 hours of Eucharistic adoration will take place in the four churches, with priests available to hear confessions in each.
