The Sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as the Sacrament of Penance, is spiritual healing and an experience of the gift of God's infinite mercy. The Sacrament also helps us stay close to the truth that we cannot live without God. Not only does confession free us from our sins, but it also challenges us to offer the same kind of compassion and forgiveness for those who sin against us. Through penance, we strengthen our faith and recover the grace of friendship with God.

Priests are available for Reconciliation on Saturday from 4:00 pm to 4:45 pm.

“Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.’ And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained’” (John 20:21-23).

Pope Francis spoke about the importance of confession during his Angelus address Aug. 2.
