“The call of Christ to conversion continues to resound in the lives of the Baptized. Conversion is a continuing obligation for the whole Church. She is holy but includes sinners in her midst.” – From the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church #299 & 298
Confession & Forgiveness in the Sacrament of Penance is a great grace from God. There is nothing wrong with admitting that we are sinners and that we need God’s grace and conversion of life. Through this holy Sacrament, it is Christ Himself who continues to forgive through the ministry of His priests. The Compendium tells us, “The Risen Lord instituted this Sacrament on the evening of Easter when He showed Himself to His Apostles and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained’” (John 20:22-23). (Compendium #299)
The Sacrament of Confession is offered Saturdays from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. in our Church.
