Penance

Confession

"On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, ‘Peace be with you.’ When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.’ And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, 'Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.'" (John 19-23)

The forgiveness of sins committed after Baptism is celebrated by a particular sacrament called the sacrament of conversion, confession, penance, or reconciliation.

To return to communion with God after having lost it through sin is a sincere and amazing gift from God who is rich in mercy and compassion. This is evident through his son Jesus Christ who came to this earth for the salvation of men and women. One must ask for this precious gift for oneself and for others.

Individuals, ages 7 and older, are encouraged to make frequent use of this Sacrament. We offer confessions every Saturday from 4:00pm-4:45pm.
