USA: INITIATIVES TO PROMOTE SACRAMENT OF CONFESSION CONTINUE

    PEORIA, 14 (NE) Continuing with an initiative of different US dioceses, a "Weekend of Reconciliation" has also taken place in the Diocese of Peoria, Ill., and has been greatly attended by Catholic faithful. "It was a moment of grace and homecoming," stated Bishop John J. Myers of Peoria, commenting the event. On Friday night alone, more than 3,000 Catholics reportedly attended penance services at 14 regional churches in the diocese.

    Other penitential acts in the different parishes of the diocese took place on Saturday. A similar activity took place last weekend in the Archdiocese of Newark, NJ, after an intense three-month campaign to promote the sacrament of confession. Thousands of American faithful went to the 81 temples selected, many of them attending confession for the first time in years.
