Celebrating the Sacrament of Reconciliation

One of the important gifts being offered whilst people are venerating the Relics is the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Forty five year old, Gary Foster from the Tyne Valley explained that was what drew him to St Andrew’s. He said: ‘I’ve come to show respect to St Therese, draw inspiration and receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. It’s not always so easy to go and I heard that it was being offered until midnight, as well as Sacrament of the Sick.’

‘I believe this experience will be a source of strength. People need pick me ups. Confession is the most under-rated thing on planet earth. It gives such joy, like putting on freshly washed clothes but a lot more so. If people only realised what was available!’
