Celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation at the 2015 Light is On event - March 25th & April 1st

All Parishes in the Diocese will offer the Sacrament of Reconciliation during the season of Lent on the evenings of Wednesday, March 25 and Wednesday, April 1.

The Church encourages us to make confession a regular part of our spiritual life, especially during the holy season of Lent, as we reflect on our baptism and repentance. Bishop Kevin J. Farrell is helping to make this experience possible by arranging for a Lenten initiative called The Light Is ON For You.

On March 25th and April 1st, all parishes in the Catholic Diocese of Dallas will have their "lights on" for confession and quiet prayer so that Catholics can come to or return to this incredible source of God’s grace, mercy and healing. 

"Don't be afraid of Confession. When you go into a confessional, you have so many emotions, including shame. But afterwords you feel free, great, beautiful and forgiven ... Each one of you should ask yourselves: When was the last time I went to Confession? If a lot of time has passed, then don't let another day go by. Go forward."

- Pope Francis, February 19, 2014
