I am one of those funny ducks that don’t go to my own parish for confession. (go to a neighboring Shrine) I understand, however, that the Pastor and the previous Pastor in our parish have not been giving penance after confession. They have also not been giving people time to say the act of contrition after confession..What’s up with all that? Anyone else been having this experience at their own parishes? People are a little confused with all this, and have been doing their own penances…???
