The Light Is On All Over The Diocese

The Light Is On for You is a Lenten initiative of the Diocese of Dallas to all Catholics to avail themselves of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Confession, according to the Catechism of the Church, is a wonderful opportunity to obtain pardon from God for the offenses we have committed against Him and be reconciled with the Church. Additional resources will be made available on the diocesan website; www.cathdal.org.
