WDTPRS kudos go out to His Excellency Most Rev. Frank Dewayne, Bishop of Venice in Florida for a diocese-wide effort, called “The Light Is On” campaign, to get people to go to confession during Lent.
The diocese has bought time on TV for a commercial and is also advertising in other ways the fact that, during Lent, all parishes will have a confessor available at given times.
Here is the commercial which will run during prime time.
Also, throughout Lent the Diocese of Venice will run English and Spanish radio ads, as well as ads on bus shelters, billboards etc. The commercials and ads will point people to a special website set up precisely for this campaign.
This website includes a Guide to Confession, explanations as to why we go to Confession, as well as video interviews with local priests answering common questions about the Sacrament.
