Available Confession Times
Although Father Jim hears confessions by appointment during the course of the year, he has created additional time slots for those who wish to avail themselves of the Sacrament of Confession prior to Holy Week & Pascha. If you wish to receive the Sacrament of Confession prior to Holy Week & Pascha, please sign up for a time by writing your name in one of the time slots on the clipboards found in the Narthex or call the church office (954) 467-1515. Please note, due to the very busy liturgical schedule during Holy Week (and due to the fact that we only have one priest) Fr. Jim will not be able to hear confessions during Holy Week.
