Reconciliation

Sometimes on our journey toward heaven we stumble and fall into sin. God is always ready to lift us up and to restore us to a grace-filled relationship with him. He does this through the Sacrament of Reconciliation (which is also known as confession or penance, each term emphasizing a different element of the sacrament).

Jesus gave his apostles power and authority to reconcile us to the Father. They received Jesus' own power to forgive sins when he breathed on them and said, "Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained" (John 20:22-23).

Paul notes that "all this is from God, who has reconciled us to himself through Christ and given us the ministry of reconciliation…We are ambassadors for Christ, as if God were appealing through us" (2 Cor 5:18-20). Through confession to a priest, God's minister, our sins are forgiven, and we receive grace to help us resist future temptations.

 

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available:

  • Saturdays from 8:30 - 9:00am
  • Wednesdays from 6:00 - 7:00pm
  • 1st Sunday of the Month from 5:15-5:45pm - Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy Devotion

Special arrangements can be made by contacting one of the priests for other times or private confession.
