Also called Penance or Confession
“Those who approach the sacrament of Reconciliation obtain pardon from the mercy of God for the offense committed against Him and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, example and prayer seeks their conversion.” (Dogmatic Constitution of the Church #11)
The sacrament may be celebrated in two ways: anonymously (behind the screen) or face to face. Preparation and personal reflection on one’s life are necessary before going to the sacrament. The faithful are encouraged to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation often.
Through the end of April, the Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered on
Thursdays from 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM and 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM.
Beginning May 1, we will return to our pre-pandemic Reconciliation times:
Thursdays from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM and Saturdays from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM.
Special Parish-wide Reconciliation services are offered during key liturgical seasons, for dates and times please consult special schedules posted during these seasons.
