Penance

The sacrament of Reconciliation is also called Confession or the sacrament of Penance. It is a sacrament of healing.
“To return to communion with God after having lost it through sin is a process born of the grace of God who is rich in mercy and solicitous for the salvation of men.” Catechism of the Catholic Church (1489)
First Reconciliation is usually received as part of First Communion process for children in their second grade year. It is also available to parishioners who did not receive it in early childhood. Please contact the parish office for further information.
