Sacrament of Reconciliation
Celebrate Reconciliation every Saturday 3:30 - 4:00 PM
Reconciliation Chapel in Church or by appointment
Because of human weakness, the new life in Christ, which we receive in the Sacraments of Initiation, is often threatened by sin. Moreover, we all face sickness and death. God constantly reaches out to us to reconcile ourselves to him...Sins committed after Baptism are forgiven in the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation, also called the Sacrament of Forgiveness, Confession, and Conversion...Divine mercy and forgiveness from sin are constant themes in Scripture. God's mercy makes possible the repentance of the sinner and the forgiveness of the sin. -- United States Catholic Catechism for Adults, p. 235.
