For several years now, the Archdiocese of Washington, during Lent, has conducted the above-named effort of re-acquainting Catholics with the Sacrament of Confession. On Wednesdays during Lent, each and every parish will have their confessionals open from 6:30pm - 8:00pm. To my knowledge, this is the first year that the Diocese of Arlington is joining the effort.
If anyone has been away from the Sacrament for a while and feels a bit awkward about it, the priest will be happy to assist you. Please come and receive Our Lord's forgiveness and sacramental grace. You won't regret it.
