The Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation
The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as Penance, or Penance and Reconciliation) has three elements: conversion, confession and celebration. In it we find God's unconditional forgiveness; as a result we are called to forgive others.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) is available to parishoners by appointment or at scheduled times. Please see events calendar for the current Reconciliation schedule.
To receive first reconciliation and first communion a child must be currently in the second grade, at least seven years old, attending Mass weekly, and must have completed one year of faith formation classes.
Parents of children in sacramental preparation are required to attend two parent classes in the Fall and two in the Spring. There are also two parent/student interveiws: one for reconciliation and one for communion.
