Reconciliation

“Indeed the sacrament of Reconciliation with God brings about a true ‘spiritual resurrection’, restoration of the dignity and blessings of the life of the children of God, of which the most precious is friendship with God.”  

–Catechism of the Catholic Church 1468

In the Sacrament of Reconciliation, we come face to face with Jesus Christ. It is not simply the priest who we confess to, or the priest who pardons us. It is Jesus Christ – present in the priest in a particular way during the sacraments – working, speaking, and pardoning. We become reconciled with God and the Church, both of whom we have offended by our sins. Reconciliation not only cleanses our souls from sin, but also gives us the grace to fight temptation and persevere in a life of virtue.

Confessions are heard every Saturday in the Church, from 4:00 - 4:45 pm.

You may also set up an appointment for confession by calling the parish office.  For a beautiful and comprehensive reflection on the Sacrament of Confession, please see our parish document called Forgiven.  It is useful for both adults as well as children.
