Reconciliation

priest absolving a young man in confession

“Reconciliation or Confession is the means by which we obtain pardon from God’s mercy for the offenses we have committed against him and reconciled with the Church which has been wounded by our sins.  It is also known as the sacrament of conversion because it makes present Jesus’ call to conversion which is the first step in returning to the Father from whom we have strayed by sin. In it we find God’s unconditional forgiveness; as a result, we are called to forgive others.” -Catechism of the Catholic Church


Reconciliation is available Wednesday mornings at 8 AM, Saturday mornings at 9 AM, Saturday evening 6:45 PM  or to schedule an appointment, please contact the Parish office:
