About the Sacrament
The Sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as Penance or Confession, is that moment of grace where one receives the forgiveness for sin won by Jesus Christ on the cross. When we sin, we harm and even kill the life of God within us given to us at Baptism. Confession is a type of “doctor’s office for the soul.” In this Sacrament, when we confess the sins we have committed since our last Confession, the priest, through the power of the Holy Spirit given to him by his ordination, is able to give Christ’s forgiveness to us. We also call this Sacrament Reconciliation, because through it, we are reconciled to God!
Preparing for Reconciliation
Here are some links to different Examinations of Conscience, which help you to know what to tell the priest in Confession.
Opportunities for Reconciliation

It is recommended that penitents arrive at the beginning of the time periods to ensure adequate opportunity to receive the sacrament.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is also available by private appointment with the priest. If you would like assistance in gaining peace and healing in your relationships with God and His Church, please contact Fr Bob Penhallurick or Fr Ed Shikina.
