Confession ... why, how, and when?

This week we have several Advent Penance Services. Wednesday, December 17th, at 6:30 p.m. there will be four priests available for confession in Sts. Peter & Paul Church, Strasburg. On Friday, December 19th, there will be three priests available for confessions at 7 p.m. in St. Marys, Hague. If it's been a while since your last confession, you might be wondering.

1. "WHY do we need to go to confession? Can't I just go directly to God?" Maybe this will help us to understand:

2. "HOW does a person go to confession?" This video offers a decent explanation. And don't worry, the priest can walk you through it:

So make plans to celebrate the sacrament. You'll feel better, trust me!

John Ashcroft Shares the Truth about Measure 1

There are a lot of emotional, confusing ads on television about problems Measure 1 will supposedly cause, if it passes.  Before you vote, you must watch the above video.  In it, the former United States Attorney General and former governor of the state of Missouri, John Ashcroft,  explains that Missouri has a similar measure in place already.  It's been in effect for a long time, and it has had NONE of the effects that are being suggested by the opposition to Measure 1.

In truth, Measure 1 will not implement new restrictions on IVF, living wills, end-of-life care, or even abortion itself.

Measure 1 deserves your “yes” vote, but don’t take my word for it. Before you vote, watch the above video and visit http://www.ndchooselife.com for more.
