The Archbishop of Cardiff, The Most Revd George Stack, has written of his care and concern for all those who are troubled and over burdened at this time, inviting them to seek divine comfort in prayer.
“Every one of us carries burdens and has things that trouble us, and also things that we regret. As Lent begins, receive and know that in a special way ‘The Light Is On For You’ in many of our churches throughout the Diocese. What we are doing for the first time this Lent, is opening the doors of a number of our parishes between 7pm – 8pm on Wednesday evenings. The hope is that we can provide a space for people to speak to God heart-to-heart to seek his healing and help. Priests will be present to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation, also called Confession, which will enable Catholics to get off their chest anything that they’d like to be forgiven.”
