Penance (Confession)

On the night of Jesus' resurrection from the dead he came to his disciples behind locked doors.  He bid them peace and said to them: "As the Father has sent me, so I send you".  Then he breathed on them and continued: "Receive the Holy Spirit, whose sins you shall forgive they are forgiven them...(Jn 20:21-23)".  As Christ was sent by the Father to reconcile the world to himself, so Christ himself sent out human beings with power, grace, and the Holy Spirit to continue his saving work of absolving sins.  

The Sacrament of Penance, also known as Confession or Reconciliation, is celebrated for individuals on Saturdays from 4:00 PM-4:45 PM in the Reconciliation Room located near the church entrance, or by making an appointment with a priest.  To schedule an appointment for individual Confession, please contact the Pastor, Fr. Dan, at the parish office. 

Confessions are also scheduled at neighboring parishes, occasionally with a number of priests on hand, please check their websites for times. 

May God give you pardon and peace.
