In this Year of Mercy, the Diocese of Buffalo will again offer special times for the sacrament of reconciliation during Lent, as parishes did during Advent.
Bishop Richard J. Malone has asked parishes to have confessors available for additional sessions, over and above parishes' normally scheduled times, for confession, generally on Wednesdays between 5 and 7 p.m. Some parishes, for pastoral reasons, have scheduled another time in the week. Below is a list of the additional times for confession.
