Saturday 3:00 pm until last penitent (or by appointment)

The Sacrament of Penance, commonly called Confession, was instituted by Jesus Christ himself on Easter Sunday, when Christ first appeared to the apostles after his Resurrection. Breathing on them, he said:

"Receive the Holy Spirit. For those whose sins you forgive, they are forgiven; for those whose sins you retain, they are retained” John 20:22.

Our Catholic Church treasures the sacrament of reconciliation. When we regret what we've done wrong, we may confess our sins to God through the ministry of a priest. As a result, many Catholics experience profound peace, acceptance, forgiveness and freedom from the burden of their sins.

​Private reconciliation is available every Saturday from 3:30-4:50 pm or a priest will generally arrange to meet with you if the appointed times prove inconvenient. During Advent and Lent we offer a communal celebration of penance.
