Canadian diocese plans 'confessional blitz'
Catholic World News - March 02, 2010
The Diocese of London, Ontario, has announced plans for a "confessional blitz" on March 3, encouraging the faithful to return to the sacrament of reconciliation. All priests of the diocese have been asked to schedule time for confessions on that date; more than 120 different parishes will make the sacrament available. The diocese has distributed 100,000 flyers explaining the program and providing instructions on making a good confession.
The program was inspired by the success of a Lenten drive to encourage confessions last year in the Archdiocese of Washington, DC. The Boston archdiocese has undertaken a similar program this year.
