Confessions for this First Friday and Saturday

There will not be a second priest to hear confessions this Friday evening during the 6 pm Mass or Saturday during the 9 am Mass. Since many of the faithful usually take advantage of these times as a part of their First Saturdays, these additional hours will be available:

5:00 pm to 6:00 pm Friday, July 1

7:00 pm to 8:00 pm Friday, July 1 (adoration will continue until 8:00 pm this Friday)

8:00 am to 9:00 am Saturday, July 2

*Because there is an optional practice for altar servers Saturday, confessions will not be heard after the First Saturday Mass and Rosary meditation.

Please also recall that it is not necessary to confess on the First Saturday itself in order to fulfill the request of Our Lady of Fatima for First Saturdays:

Sister Lucia clarified what should be done if confession cannot be made on the first Saturday of the month:

“My Jesus! Many souls find it difficult to confess on Saturday. Will Thou allow a confession within eight days to be valid? He replied:

Yes. It can even be made later on, provided that the souls are in the state of grace when they receive Me on the First Saturday and that they had the intention of making reparation to the Sacred Heart of Mary. – My Jesus!

And those who forget to form this intention?

They can form it at the next confession, taking advantage of their first opportunity to go to confession. (February 15, 1926)”
