Sacrament of Reconciliation

The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Penance, Confession) offers us an opportunity to reflect on the areas of our lives where we have failed to be the people God has created us to be, and to bring these failures to God in humility and confidence that God loves us.   Priests are available in the church on a weekly basis every Saturday afternoon at 3:30 or by appointment.  Please contact the office to make other arrangements to receive this sacrament.

 

In the sacrament of penance, by naming and confessing our sins before the priest, who represents Christ, we face our failings more honestly and accept responsibility for our sins. It is also in confession that a priest and penitent can work together to find the direction needed for the penitent to grow spiritually and to avoid sin in the future
