In preparation for the feast of the Lord’s Nativity we will be holding a Penitential Service in the Parish Church on Monday evening at 7:30pm
In the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) God is offering us his unequivocal deep personal love. His love is a free gift to us from himself. We cannot earn it, demand it, manipulate it nor can we force it, because it is already ours. God wants each of us to experience his forgiveness, his healing and his acceptance of our brokenness. He wants to enable us to be free to receive his love, love of others and to be able to reciprocate this love. Some people argue that God is too soft on the sinner, but God is not man, not woman, he is a generous God, the source of all love and we are made in his image and likeness.
This Penitential Service is an excellent way to prepare ourselves for the great feast of the Lord’s Nativity. It is an opportunity to unburden ourselves, to be healed, to be loved by the one who came to set us free.
Join us on Monday evening at 7:30pm in the Parish Church to experience the loving tenderness of God.
