Have you made your Easter duty?

DURING THE EASTER season Catholics are required to receive the Eucharist at least once, and if they are in grave sin, they must go to Confession first. That is the mimimun duty, but as parish pastor Fr. Britto Berchmans explains, there are many benefits to receiving the sacraments, the greatest of which is an encounter with Christ. Follow VISION Vocation Network's recently launched video series on the sacrament of Reconciliation.
