The Light is On For You Campaign


The Light is on for You, was created by the Archdiocese of Washington and has since been implemented by dioceses throughout the United States. The Diocese of Syracuse is proud to join in this effort.

By participating in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, whether our first time in days, weeks, months or years, we are experiencing God’s individual and unwavering love for us and one of the true graces made available to us by our Catholic faith. God loves us just the way we are, but he loves us too much to leave us that way.

Visit a Catholic church in the Diocese of Syracuse on Monday, April 14, 4p.m.-7pm  to make your confession.  For tips for how to make a good Confession, click here. If you have questions about confession ie. Why make a confession?, Why does a Priest have to hear the confession, or how often should I make a confession, click here.  The light is on for you!
