Not only does it [the Sacrament of Penance] free us from our sins but it also challenges us to have the same kind of compassion and forgiveness for those who sin against us. We are liberated to be forgivers. We obtain new insight into the words of the Prayer of St. Francis: “It is in pardoning that we are pardoned.”
Jesus entrusted the ministry of reconciliation to the Church. The Sacrament of Penance 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, especially mortal sins. With absolution, we are reconciled to God and the Church. The Sacrament helps us stay close to the truth that we cannot live without God. “In him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).~from the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults | en español
Reconciliation is a Sacrament of Healing. This sacrament focuses on forgiveness in our life and on our acceptance of that forgiveness, which brings us back to spiritual health in the family of God after we have turned away.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) is available every Saturday at 4:30PM in front of the church or call the Parish Office to schedule an appointment.
For those seeking First Confession preparation please contact Tammy Mansir, Faith Formation Director.
We hold Parish Lenten and Advent Penance Services in Church with a number of priests available, to prepare for those seasons. Check our Events Page for dates and times.
