The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered Monday through Saturday after the 8:30am Mass in the Welcome Center, every Saturday from 4:00pm until 4:30pm in the back of the church, and every Sunday from 11:15am until 11:45am in Spanish in the back of the church. You may also call the Parish Office to set an appointment with one of our priests.
During the seasons of Advent and Lent we offer a Reconciliation Service with individual confessions. Priests from other parishes in the local area are present to hear confessions.
If it has been a while since you have been to Confession, do not be afraid! The Priest will guide you through this Sacrament of healing or find out How to go to Confession.
Children in second grade normally go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time prior to receiving their First Holy Communion. Older students who have not yet received the Eucharist for the first time are placed with their peers in age appropriate settings during one of our Faith Formation for Children and Youth sessions.
Preparation for this Sacrament is a year long process, including Religious Education classes for the students and parent-child Sacramental Preparation sessions that help to encourage communication and dialog. First Reconciliation is celebrated during Advent. Preparation for the Sacrament begins with enrollment in our Faith Formation.
Please contact the Faith Formation Office for more information.
