Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation

dnhk1z0ov3e411o72tk9j9octzl.jpgReconciliation is a sacrament of healing, through which we receive God’s forgiveness for any sins we have committed.  It is a sacrament that reconciles us to God and helps us reconcile with one another. 

Priests are available to hear confessions on Saturdays at 3:30 p.m. in the confessionals in the church, Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. in the confessional by the southeast entrance of the chapel, or by appointment. Parish Reconciliation services are held during Advent and Lent.

Normally, this sacrament is received for the first time during the latter half of the second year of preparation, usually the winter of 2nd grade.  This preparation program is based on parents being the primary educators; the church/school offers the necessary resources and activities. Please submit Baptismal certificate at registration and see the list of preparation dates associated with this sacrament.
