Nobody wants to come to Idaho so I can go tomorrow? lol. I've been trying to make it and something keeps getting in the way every week, and of course this week I have no reason I can't go...but dh works...ugh! I'm kind of hoping my mom can watch the kids though because Nick should get home from work just shortly after I need to have left, so that would mean she only has to do it for a little bit.
Have you been to Reconciliation during Advent yet? Are you going if you haven't?
We haven't gone yet, but will soon. I like going as a family so our kids can go too (those who are old enough to), but also so they can see that Mom and Dad need God's forgiveness too.
That said, when I've had a hard time getting there and couldn't find anyone to watch the kids....I have called Father and asked if he could meet me in the parish office parking lot! Then I can leave the kids buckled in their seats, but we stand outside the vehicle where they can't hear us. Parking Lot Confession! LOL
Our diocese made a big push for Confession this Advent; they asked every parish to have it available each Wednesday evening in addition to the regular parish Confession times (not instead of, in addition to!)
We always have the regular ones, plus each parish picks one day to do an extra one where all the priests from all the parishes show up to make it so lots of people can come and get it done at various times without huge waits. Tomorrow there is one, I may go, but I have dinner plans, so I have to find out what time, if not, Courtney turns out doesn't need to go with me, cuz Father is coming to the school on Wednesday, so that makes it a little quicker at least.
