I went to Confession yesterday - there was a traffic jam in the parking lot! I had to wait on 1 of the two lines for a little while, and while there each of the two priests were relieved by another priest. This Diocesan wide day of Confession is a great idea and is quite popular. You can hardly spit without hitting a Catholic Church here on Long Island so it is very convenient. It also helps knowing you can walk into any parish anywhere and go anonymously. I am glad to see the Diocese of Brooklyn is on board also.
I wish everyone a prayerful and peaceful Holy Week.
