They lock the doors at my Church in the evening.
Unfortunately the Priest forgot to lock the doors a couple of weeks ago and the poor box got robbed, Torn right out of the wall.
We have confessions every Saturday and twice a week during lent. I would guess only 10% of the parisioners bother to go.
We have confessions every Tuesday and Saturday before evening Mass and during Lent they added Wednesday evening and by appointment. All of our RCIA class went to Confession even the ones being Baptized and one of those came out sobbing. It’s strongly encouraged in our parish. We also have archdiocesian Penance services before Easter and Christmas. Those are always crowded. I wish that they would do them more often. Always lines here. Too bad some parishes neglect this wonderful sacrament. Step 5 baby. Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. Remember - the priest is there representing Jesus. I focus on that truth. I know that the Protestants don’t want that intermediary but Step 5 from AA and Al-Alon makes it clear that having another person in the mix is very powerful.
