Notification Letter for change Email Address
Dear guests and friends,
I have recently changed my email address as I could not access the previous
one due to security issues. I tried to recover it, but all the efforts went in vain.
My new email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and I would like
you to kindly change it as soon as possible so I do not miss out on more emails.
Also, as I lost my account on November 2020, so I request you to kindly resend
me the emails sent after this time on my new email address so I can catch up
with the missed work.
I would be very thankful to you.

Due to the government’s advice, confirmed by our bishop, our church will now remain closed until further notice and the daily confessions will be suspended. Pope Francis gave this advice on 20th March for those unable to go to confession: “But many people today would tell me, ‘Father, where can I find a priest, a confessor, because I can’t leave the house? And I want to make peace with the Lord, I want him to embrace me, I want the Father’s embrace.'”
The pope said his response would be, “Do what the Catechism (of the Catholic Church) says. It is very clear: If you cannot find a priest to confess to, speak directly with God, your father, and tell him the truth. Say, ‘Lord, I did this, this, this. Forgive me,’ and ask for pardon with all your heart.”
Make an act of contrition, the pope said, and promise God, “‘I will go to confession afterward, but forgive me now.’ And immediately you will return to a state of grace with God.”
The Catechism of the Catholic Church, N. 1452, says: “When it arises from a love by which God is loved above all else, contrition is called ‘perfect’ — contrition of charity. Such contrition remits venial sins; it also obtains forgiveness of mortal sins if it includes the firm resolution to have recourse to sacramental confession as soon as possible.”
“As the catechism teaches,” Francis said, “you can draw near to God’s forgiveness without having a priest at hand. Think about it. This is the moment.”
