Reconciliation

God, the Father of mercies, through the death and the resurrection of his Son has reconciled the world to himself and sent the Holy Spirit among us for the forgiveness of sins…

The Sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as confession, is offered every week and also by appointment. Please see the schedule listed on the homepage for the times or call the office for a private appointment.

In Reconciliation, we recognize the truth about ourselves before God, and the truth sets us free (John 8:32). Though we may come feeling uncomfortable or embarrassed, we leave feeling at peace, joyful, and relieved.

When our baptismal union with Christ is weakened by sin, the Sacrament of Reconciliation reunites us to Jesus firmly and intimately so that we may continue to share in the grace and wisdom that flows from God to all of his children.

Since it is necessary to grow spiritually closer to God throughout our lives, all Catholics must go to confession at least once per year especially before Easter during Lent. It is also a good practice to go before Christmas during Advent. Wanting always to be united with the one true vine, Jesus, you may also want to receive this Sacrament monthly or even weekly.
