Out of his great love, Jesus instituted this sacrament through which a sinner who is sorry receives pardon and peace and is restored to the fullness of grace with God. Sin not only affects our relationship with God, but also alienates us from other people and the Church. In the sacrament of reconciliation, Jesus provides us with a way of being reconciled to God and to those we have hurt, and to be strengthened in our connection to God’s entire family.
A parish Reconciliation Service is held during Advent and Lent. Prayer, song, and Scripture readings are followed by an opportunity for individual confession. Many priests are present and are able to hear confessions in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese.
First Saturday of the month, outdoors near the pavilion, 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
