The Cathedral of St. Patrick Young Adults and the Archdiocese of New York have announced a “24 Hours of Confession” program to make the Sacrament available round-the-clock in Manhattan from March 6 to March 7.
The program will begin at 7:00 a.m. on Friday, March 6 and last through 7:00 a.m. Saturday.
The Cathedral of St. Patrick and 20 other area parishes are participating in the event. Many parishes have extended their hours for hearing confessions for those Catholics who have not found time for the Sacrament.
Participating parishes will keep their confessional doors open for a combined total of more than 120 hours during the 24-hour period.
