"Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion" (Lumen gentium 11 § 2).
The Sacrament of Penance is celebrated every Saturday from 4 - 5 p.m. in the church.
During Advent and Lent, the parish celebrates two communal Penance celebrations with several Priests available for individual confessions.
Children in the second grade are prepared by their parents for the reception of the Sacrament of Penance for the first time. The program for parents is held in the fall. The celebration of First Penance is held in January. The preparation program is under the direction of the Religious Education Office at 994-7757. The welcome letter detailing the sacramental preparation is located in the Document section on this page.
