History of the Sacrament of Reconciliation

Tuesdays, March 3rd and 10th
7:30 PM in our Church

Come learn or get renewed on the Church’s understanding and practice of this sacrament which has changed over the centuries.   This is a great opportunity to come reflect on how you want to live the commandment to “Be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect” and to receive the Lord’s forgiveness when you fail to live up to that standard.
