The Light Is On For You

Encounter the Peace of Christ During the Season of Lent

This Lent, the Archdiocese of Cincinnati will once again engage in the initiative, "The Light Is On For You". On Tuesday, March 19 from 7:00pm – 9:00pm, most Catholic parishes/pastoral regions will open their doors and provide the opportunity for private confession. (To take place at St. Mary, Bethel.)

If you have been reluctant to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, have been away from the Church for some time, or just find it difficult to get to a regularly scheduled confession time or communal penance service, this is your chance to experience the reconciling peace of Christ through the grace of the Sacrament. No stress, just peace! 

Invite a Friend or Family Member to Encounter the Peace of Christ


Do you know someone who stopped coming to Mass or is experiencing doubt in their lives? Invite them to participate in "The Light Is On For You" on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 from 7:00pm – 9:00pm. Invite them to experience the peace of Christ through quiet prayer and through the grace of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Repent and sin no more… experience Christ’s peace!


Priests throughout the Archdiocese will hear private confessions and churches will be open for quiet reflection and prayer. Consider making a commitment this Lent to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation and receive the healing grace of God’s forgiveness and love.

When you click this link, you will be able to read the February 26th 2019 letter from Archbishop Schnurr regarding the meeting in Rome with Pope Francis and the world's bishops. The purpose of this gathering was to address the great evil of clerical sexual abuse of minors, with particular focus on bishops who failed to appropriately deal with this abuse in their dioceses.
