WHAT IS THE SACRAMENT OF CONFESSION?

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of Catholicism. Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Confession, so that we as sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and the Church. The sacrament “washes us clean,” and renews us in Christ.

 

“Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.’ And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained’”                                                                                                           John 20:21-23

 

Holy Spirit Parish Reconciliation Schedule

Confessions are heard every Saturday from 2-4 pm and on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30 in the Reconciliation Room of the main church.  You can also call the parish office, 452-6491, and make an appointment.

 

Holy Spirit Parish also holds community Reconciliation Services during Advent and Lent.  Reconciliation Services generally consist of  Scripture readings, perhaps a homily, and a priest-guided examination of conscience.  Priests from around the community will join Fr. Doug in hearing individual confessions.
