PENANCE / RECONCILIATION
Penance is the sacrament by which sins committed after Baptism are forgiven through the absolution of the priest. Like every sacrament, it is a sign of three things: past, present, & future.
- It is a sign of the Passion of Christ and of His Precious Blood, which is the medicine He uses to heal our souls.
- It is a sign of the healing action of Christ on the soul through the absolution of the priest.
- It is a sign of the spiritual health which this sacrament gives.
Confessions are heard every Saturday, Eves of Holy Days, & Eves of First Fridays at 12:00 noon & 8:00 pm.
EUCHARIST / HOLY COMMUNION
The Holy Eucharist is a sacrament and a sacrifice. In the Holy Eucharist, under the appearances of bread and wine, the Lord Christ is contained, offered, and received.
Confirmation is the sacrament through which the Holy Spirit comes to us in a special way and enables us to profess our faith as strong and perfect Christians and soldiers of Jesus Christ. All Catholics should be confirmed in order to be strengthened against the dangers to salvation and to be prepared better to defend their Catholic faith.
Arrangements for a wedding are to be made at least six (6) months in advance. A date should not be set until the priest has been consulted.
