The Sacrament of Reconciliation


While Baptism restores us to our original innocence and right relationship with God and others, the Sacrament of Reconciliation
allows us to recover that innocence and rectify our relationship with God and others when we have fallen through sin and selfishness.


Young people who have reached the age of reason (7 years) are eligible to receive this sacrament and are prepared for it along
with their preparation for First Communion.  The current practice requires children to receive this sacrament prior to receiving
First Communion.


The Sacrament of Reconciliation is regularly celebrated on Saturday afternoon at 3:30 PM or at other times by appointment.
It is also celebrated in a communal setting during the seasons of Advent and Lent.
