Parish Reconciliation Service

Tuesday, December 6th at 7:00 pm in the Church

Has it been awhile since your last confession?  Do you have questions?  
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is God's gift to us through the Church, giving us the opportunity to repent and recover the grace of friendship wit God.  For help preparing to receive the Sacrament see here:
our website link  and the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops resources.
