Penance & Reconciliation

“Not only does the Sacrament of Reconciliation free us from our sins but it also challenges us to have the same kind of compassion and forgiveness for those who sin against.  We are liberated to be forgivers.  We obtain new insight into the words of the Prayer of St. Francis:  ‘It is pardoning that we are pardoned.’

Jesus entrusted the ministry of reconciliation to the Church.  The Sacrament of Reconciliation is God’s gift to us so that any sin committed after Baptism can be forgiven.  In confession, we have the opportunity to repent and recover the grace of friendship with God.  It is a holy moment in which we place ourselves in his presence and honestly acknowledge our sins.  Sacrament helps us stay close to the truth that we cannot live without God.  ‘In him, we live and move and have our beings’” (Acts 17:28)  USCCB

Confessions are held on Saturdays throughout the year, with the exception of Holy Saturday from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm or by appointment with a priest (call the parish office).
