As part of the Diocese of Youngstown celebration of the Year of Mercy, all parishes in the six-county diocese will celebrate a special evening of reconciliation entitled "Leaving the Light On" ~ An Evening of Reconciliation on Wednesday, March 2, 2016.  From 7:00-8:30 p.m. the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available in all parishes.  Pope Francis has said that the Year of Mercy should be a time when all people of faith become ever mindful of God's mercy in their lives and that in turn, all people show and offer that same mercy to one another.

"Leaving the Light On" ~ An Evening of Reconciliation provides an opportunity for all parishioners to embrace and live God's mercy and love more completely.  This event also coincides with the Season of Lent which urges Catholics to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation as part of their Lenten journey in preparation for Easter.  All parishioners are encouraged to participate in this special event at their parish or at a neighboring parish.  For more information, contact the Office of Worship, 330-744-8451.
