Reconciliation

We invite you to experience the sacrament of Reconciliation on Saturdays from 3:30- 4:00 p.m. in the Chapel

or you may call for an appointment at  661-0644.

 

First Reconciliation Preparation

The sacrament of Reconciliation usually takes place during 2nd grade. One year of previous faith formation is required.  It is an important part of who we are as Catholics. It teaches our children about God’s unconditional love and forgiveness. The three Reconciliation workshops are only PART of the requirements to celebrate this wonderful sacrament. Monthly Generation of Faith attendance from September through May (9 sessions) and weekly Mass attendance is vital to ensure our commitment as parents is prioritizing our faith first.  Parent/guardian attendance is required for all sessions.

Jesus said,
“In the same way there is more happiness in heaven because of one sinner who turns to God than over ninety nine good people who don’t need to.”
Luke 15:7
