* or immediately following 8:30 am Mass. Confession begins later on the first Saturday of the month, following Anointing of the Sick and Benediction.

** Confession is still offered when a wedding is taking place.  Please quietly enter at the back of the church.  The line forms against the wall near the confessionals.

 

The Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as "Confession" or "Penance") is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of Catholicism. Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Confession, so that we as sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and the Church.


The sacrament “washes us clean,” and renews us in Christ. “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'
