“Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God’s mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1422)
Each Advent and Lent, the parish celebrates a Communal Reconciliation Service, which includes a Liturgy of the Word, communal prayer and song, and a time for individual confession and absolution from one of multiple priests available to celebrate the sacrament.
Children older than 2nd grade and adults over the age of 18 desiring to receive their First Penance should contact Carol Heuser at the parish office, 777-4322, ext. 104.
