Ours has confession once a month.
Not nearly enough time for the parish at only three hours.
Our’s has 30 minutes before Mass and by appointment.
An hour before the vigil mass for a bigger parish sends the message that it must not be too big of a deal. That’s 4 hours a month. Bare minimum once a year confession is something like 80 people in an hour, less than one minute confessions. 3 hours once a month would be even worse, one less hour. Are several parishes sharing a priest or something?
We have confession Wednesday evenings, Saturday afternoons, and ‘anytime you want confession, just stop one of the priests. That is our first priority.’ The lines are always long. It is the sign of a healthy church, I believe.
Once per MONTH???? Our is every Saturday for 1.5 hours, and then 30 minutes prior to each mass, including weekdays 8 AM mass. Plus by appointment. I feel blessed!
our parish church is about 4 minutes walk away and has confession during each Sunday mass. But there are 3 others in walking distance that have confessions during the week and there are quite a few churches around Warsaw
We have the opportunity for Reconciliation four times a week, and the lines are always long...in may cases, the Fathers end up staying for at least an extra 45 minutes to ensure that everyone in line has the chance to confess.
