In this week’s edition of the AB official newspaper The Pilot, the Archdiocese of Boston has announced the return of “The Light Is On For You” – a weekly Sacrament of Reconciliation initiative begun in Lent and now being broadened into the Advent season.
As part of the Lenten initiative, Cardinal O’Malley asked every church and chapel of the Archdiocese of Boston to be open Wednesday evenings for private confessions. This Advent season, every church and chapel (my bold) will be open on Dec. 15 and 22 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
There is an official website for this initiative – http://www.thelightisonforyou.org/. Click on the site for tips for confession, guides for the examination of conscience, reflections on the value of the sacrament and parish resources for promoting the initiative. The site launched in Lent was recently updated and includes a link to the Pilot Parish Finder. A particular feature of the ParishFinder is a map of the Archdiocese with a series of “church” icons that pinpoint the location of each Catholic Church.
To help as many Catholics as possible participate in this program, the archdiocese’s Pilot Media Group has developed PilotParishFinder.com, a website and iPhone application that will assist Catholics in locating churches around the archdiocese.
