As part of a campaign to bring Catholics back to the church, Pittsburgh Catholic Diocese Bishop David Zubik is asking every parish in the diocese to offer confession on March 6.

“My hope and prayer is to attract those who might have been away from the church for a long time to take advantage of this special night of grace. At the same time, I hope that you and I can appeal as well to Catholics who attend Mass regularly but have avoided confession, not receiving the grace of the healing forgiveness of Jesus for a long time,” Zubik wrote in a letter to diocese priests and deacons at the beginning of Lent. He is asking for each church in the 203 parishes to offer confession from 6 to 9 p.m. that day. Zubik himself will be at Saints John and Paul Parish in Franklin Park to hear confession.

“The Light is on for You” campaign is taking part in dioceses throughout the country this Lent and is developed from a campaign that was created in the Pittsburgh diocese in 1999.
