Hebrews 10:19 & 22
Reconciliation is the liturgical celebration of God’s forgiveness of the sins of the penitent, who is thus reconciled with the Church. The acts of the penitent — contrition, the confession of sins, and satisfaction or reparation — together with the prayer of absolution by the priest, constitute the essential elements of the Sacrament of Penance.
Reconciliation is held every Saturday morning from 8:30 to 10:00 am and on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 to 6:30 pm or by calling the Parish Office, 288-2888 for an appointment.
Examination of Conscience
Reconciliation addresses the disease (sinfulness) rather than the symptoms (sins). So, the sacrament calls us to more than prepared speeches or lists of sins. We are challenged to search deep into our heart of hearts to discover the struggles, value conflicts and ambiguities (the disease) which cause the sinful acts (the symptoms) to appear.

Great Bible Verse... Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
