When calling for the Year of Mercy, Pope Francis expressed his desire that “this moment be linked, first and foremost, to the Sacrament of Reconciliation.”

Additionally, he asked that the initiative “24 Hours for the Lord” be celebrated on the Friday and Saturday   preceding the Fourth Week of Lent. “So many people,” he wrote, “including young people, are returning to the sacrament of reconciliation; through this experience they are rediscovering a path back to the Lord, living a moment of intense prayer and finding meaning in their lives.”

Eucharistic Adoration, Confession and liturgical prayer will be available for 24 hours:

Beginning 3pm March 4, through March 5, at 3pm

Parish location: Saint John of God Church, 680 Town Bank Road, North Cape May.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

I, and all the priests of Cape May County, will ensure that a priest will always be available throughout the entire 24 hour period for anyone who seeks to share in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
