Reconciliation (Penance, Confession)
Jesus Christ gave His apostles and their successors the “power of the keys” on the night of His Resurrection, saying to them, “Whose sins you shall forgive are forgiven them. Whose sins you shall retain are retained in Heaven.” Knowing all too well our sinful human nature, the Lord left us the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the healing of our souls.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available each Tuesday morning before both the 6:30 am Mass, and on Saturday afternoon from 4:00 to 4:45pm, before the 5:00pm Mass. It is also available anytime by appointment.
Catholics are encouraged to make confession a regular part of their spiritual lives, especially during Lent, and in preparation for Christmas. By Church Law, those conscious of grave sin must confess their sins as soon as possible and may not receive our Lord in Holy Communion until they have been reconciled and received absolution in the Sacrament.
