no confession on ash wenesday?

When you think about it, it is quite ridiculous for priests to offer 3-4 masses on Ash Wednesday (not a Holy Day of obligation), but yet fail to offer confessions.

The true purpose of Ash Wednesday is repentance and thus confession should be showcased and first priority. Distribution of ashes (a mere sacramental) should be second priority. Have a day mass and one evening mass and schedule a long period of confession times.

To have Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, and no confessions is pretty absurd. I too was unable to get to confession yesterday as no parish anywhere around me offered any. They were too busy having, in some cases, up to FOUR masses/ ash distribution services. Priorities are completely flipped.

I suppose if one dies and goes to Hell due to lack of available confessions, they can at least take solace in knowing they received their ashes before burning for eternity...
