Saint Padre Pio encourages us to regular confession more than twice a year.
The peace of mind and soul, which this sacrament imparts to us, is one for which there is no substitute. It is a peace that flows from a certainty, rather than from an unsure hope, that our sins have been forgiven and that we are right with God. A good Catholic examination of conscience can be a great help in making a new start in the life of faith.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is also called the Sacrament of Penance. It is a sacrament of healing and peace. It is the opportunity for spiritual healing and absolution when we have become distanced from God by our sins. Through this sacrament, we are restored to a right relationship with God.
First Reconciliation is part of the First Communion preparation program.
Reconciliation is available in the Sanctuary Confessional at 2:30 PM on Saturdays, and also by appointment.
