As we begin this year, with the approval of the Presbyteral Council, Bishop Richard J. Malone announces that throughout the season of Advent, over and above the regular confession schedule, all parishes in the Diocese of Buffalo will offer the opportunity for the Sacrament of Penance on Wednesdays. Generally, this will take place between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Wednesday evenings. If a particular parish, for pastoral reasons, has scheduled another time on Wednesdays, please note the schedule below.
