Not at my parish.

Yeah, I think it makes a difference what the emphasis is from your priests.

I go to a pretty average N.O. parish with a 35 year old pastor. He makes it clear several times a year during his homilies that he, personally, sees his confessor a minimum of once a month. He models it for everyone else and makes it clear that the sacrament is available outside of the scheduled times, if needed.

If I have something serious to confess, I make sure I make it at the start of the scheduled time on Saturday, I've seen the line long enough that not everyone makes it before Mass starts an hour and a half later.

Perhaps your priest should take some more time from his busy week to offer this sacrament.
