Sacrament of Reconciliation

This great sacrament is known by different names: The Sacrament of Confession, Penance or Reconciliation.  Each name emphasizes a different aspect of the beautiful means of obtaining absolution and forgiveness of our sins.

Confessions are available at the following scheduled times, and anytime by appointment:

Wednesday 7:00 to 8:00 pm
Saturday 3:30 to 4:20 pm
Sunday 8:30 to 8:50 & 10:30 to 10:50 am

*** Our Lenten Reconciliation Service will be on Palm Sunday – March 24 at 3pm.  Four priests will be available to hear confessions. ***

If you have been away, be not afraid!  The Lord desires to show His mercy, and the priest longs to be the Lord’s instrument.

How to Prepare for Confession


Whose idea was it for us to seek forgiveness of sins by confessing to a priest?  

That would be our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!  After He had risen from the dead, He appeared to the apostles:

Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”  And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.  Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.” – John 20:21-23

There are only two times in Scripture where God breathes upon man.  The first occurs in Genesis, when God breathed a living soul into the first man.  The second occurs in John, when God breathes the power to forgive sins – to restore life – upon the first priests of the new covenant!
