As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our sins from us. –Psalm 103:12
Sacrament of Reconciliation (Penance)
The Sacrament of Reconciliation exists for the forgiveness of our sins. Sin hurts our relationships with God, our neighbors, and ourselves.
If a person comes to the Sacrament with sorrow, detests their sins, and has a resolution not to sin again, then God will forgive any and every sin in the confessional. By the priest’s sacramental absolution God grants the penitent ‘pardon and peace’ (CCC 1424). For our Confession schedule, click here.
The second grade religious education curriculum prepares children to celebrate First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. Parents are required to attend one meeting in preparation for each sacrament. Older children who have not celebrated these sacraments are prepared privately. Arrangements for this preparation can be made with the Director of Religious Education.
