St. Anne Church in Richmond Hill seats about 1,000. It was built this size with future growth in mind. We are a bedroom suburb of Savannah and we are at the precipice of an already booming growth becoming nuclear.
We had two Ash Wednesday Masses at 9 AM and 7 PM. There were about 300 at the 9 AM and about 800 at the 7 PM Mass, if not more.
My parochial vicar and I both heard Confessions after both Masses. Both Masses lasted slightly longer than an hour each. We finished Confessions after the 9 at about 11 AM and after the 7 at about 9:30 PM, about an hour after my bedtime.
Most of these Confessions were not like being stoned with popcorn but stones, as these were big Confessions for some powerful sinners.
Did your parish have Ash Wednesday Confessions?
