Parishes across diocese hold extra penance services in Lent

LINCOLN (SNR) – Catholics turned out in large numbers for the “24 Hours for the Lord” Lenten observance March 13-14.

Confessions were available at the Cathedral of the Risen Christ in Lincoln over a 24-hour period, and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament was held, at the urging of Pope Francis.

Confessions are still available at parishes across the Diocese of Lincoln, and several still have regularly-planned Lenten penance services.

The typical penance service includes a liturgy with examination of conscience, with time for confessions afterward. In many areas of the diocese, priests travel from parish to parish to give larger groups of individuals at each church the opportunity to receive the sacrament.

A list of all diocesan parishes is available here.
