Sacrament of Reconciliation
SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION
Saturdays, 3:30 – 4:30 PM or by appointment.
Christ instituted the sacrament of Penance for all sinful members of his Church: above all for those who, since Baptism, have fallen into grave sin, and have thus lost their baptismal grace and wounded ecclesial communion. It is then that the sacrament of Penance offers a new possibility to convert and to recover the grace of justification. -- Catechism of the Catholic Church 1446
Act of Contrition
“O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you and I detest all my sins, because I dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell. But most of all because I have offended you, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of your grace, to confess my sins, to do penance and to amend my life. Amen.”
