The Sacrament of Reconciliation (also called Penance or Confession) is a gift to help us reconcile with God and the Church when we have damaged our relationship s with God and our community through our sins. Through the Sacrament, we acknowledge our sins, express our sorrow, receive forgiveness from Christ and the Church, and try to make reparation for what we have done and resolve to do better in the future.
Old St. Patrick’s Church offers the Sacrament of Reconciliation at 11:45 a.m. on Friday mornings before our 12:10 p.m. Mass. The Sacrament is also available upon request, simply contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Third graders prepare for First Reconciliation through the Partners Religious Education or Frances Xavier Warde School.
