24 Hours for the Lord

   24 Hours for the Lord is a direct initiative of Pope Francis inviting all to experience the Mercy of the Lord through the sacrament of reconciliation.  In each diocesan region an extended time is set aside to make available at a particular church in that region the celebration of penance/confession. This is to tangibly represent that God’s Mercy awaits all, day and night. The Lord cares for us always.
