What is Reconciliation? What is Confession? What is Penance?
Approximately 40,000 people have had their confessions heard during the last four annual Day of Confessions at Catholic churches across southwestern Ontario.
Why the Focus on Confession? People use Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and blogs to tell their family, friends and even complete strangers details about their personal lives. Yet they seem reluctant to talk to God about what they did. This is the fourth year of the Diocese of London’s initiative to encourage Catholics to come back to Confession this Lent.
What is Lent? Lent is the 40-day penitential period before Easter and is a time when Catholics place an extra focus on God’s mercy and forgiveness.

Confession Flyers: Instructions for adding Confession times
The easiest way to add Confession times is to print out the flyer and write them by hand.
If you want to print Confession times on the flyer from your printer, follow these steps:
1. Print out a copy of the flyer
2. Reinsert the flyer in your printer so you can print on it
3. In a blank Word document, create a text box with times in the same area as the blank space on the poster
4. Print the document on the already printed flyer
