Reconciliation

What is it?: The Lord gave us Reconciliation (Confession or Sacrament of Penance) as a means of being cleansed of our sins and being united with Him and the Church.

When can I go to Confession?: Please see the left side bar (under Mass Schedule) for the most current listing of days and times for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.   

Do I have to sit face to face?: No. Our confessionals provide for face-to-face if you prefer, but you can also receive the sacrament from behind a screen.

How often should I go to Confession?: Catholics are encouraged to receive the sacrament of Reconciliation regularly, at least during Lent and in preparation for Christmas. By Church Law, those conscious of serious sin must confess as soon as possible and may not receive our Lord in Holy Communion until they have received absolution sacramentally.
