A simple Act of Contrition. A number of people have asked for an act of contrition for confession. There are many forms of this but here is a very simple one:
Oh my God, because you are so good, I am very sorry that I have sinned against you, and by your help I will not sin again. Amen.
There are confessions Saturday 5.15 – 5.50pm at Agia Kyriaki or during any Mass on Sunday at Agia Kyriaki. Whoever is saying Mass at Polis on Saturday evening or Pissouri on Sunday evening is available before Mass for confessions.
When coming to Mass if a Mass is in progress please wait above the bridge as, if there are people on the bridge it makes it difficult for people to get out especially disabled people. Would you also allow disabled people into the Church first. Please remember to keep quiet in church so as people can pray before Mass and also please obsereve the dress code by covering shoulders and ensuring you are respectably dressed. Thank you
