Penance is a Sacrament whereby the sins, whether mortal or venial, which we have committed after Baptism are forgiven by the absolution of a priest in Confession. Our Lord instituted the Sacrament of Penance when He breathed on His Apostles and gave them power to forgive sins, saying, "Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven." The priest forgives sin by the power of God. The Sacrament of Penance increases the grace of God in the soul, besides forgiving sin; we should, therefore, go often to Confession.
The Sacrament of Penance is celebrated each Saturday from 4:30 pm to 5:15 pm or by appointment. Please contact the parish office to schedule an appointment.
