Why Confession?

A Panel Discussion on Zoom

Thursday, February 23, 2023 – 7:00-8:30 PM

Join four priests of the Archdiocese for a webinar discussion on the Sacrament of Reconciliation. It’s a chance to ask all of your questions about a sacrament that many people want to know more about. Submit your questions in advance or in realtime during the webinar. Questions can include things like:
~ Why do I have to confess my sins to a priest?
~ What is the “seal of confession” and why is it so strict?
~ I have confessed my sins but still can’t forgive myself…what do I do?
~ I keep confessing the same sins over and over…why can’t I change?

Priest panel: 

Fr. Eric Banecker, Pastor, St. Francis de Sales, Philadelphia

Fr. Addisalem Mekonnen, Pastor, St. Martin de Porres, Philadelphia

Basilica Status Bestowed on The Miraculous Medal Shrine in Germantown

The Miraculous Medal Shrine, a Marian devotional destination and ministry of the Vincentians of the Eastern Province in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, has been elevated by the Vatican to Minor Basilica status.

This designation is shared by only one other church in the City of Philadelphia, the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, and 91 others across the United States. The Shrine, along with the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception that houses it, are now known as the Basilica Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.
