Today, Saturday, March 31, we will be praying the Vespers service for the Feast of the Entry of Our Lord into Jerusalem (Palm Sunday) at 6:00PM. Afterwards we will pray the Canon of Repentance and Fr. Gregory will be available to hear confessions.
It is customary for Orthodox Christians to go to confession at least once during Lent. However, far from being an item to merely check off the to-do list or an action that we legalistically follow because it’s “the rule”, confession during this time is a wonderful opportunity to deepen our repentance and more fully experience the forgiveness of sins in order to better love God and our neighbor as we anticipate the celebration of Our Lord’s glorious and life-giving resurrection.
