He breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.”
John 20: 22 - 23
The Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation free us from our sins as it also challenges us to have the same kind of compassion and forgiveness for those who sin against us. We are liberated to be forgivers. We obtain new insight into the words of the Prayer of St. Francis: "It is in pardoning that we are pardoned."
With absolution, we are reconciled to God and the Church. The Sacrament helps us stay close to the truth that we cannot live without God.
Preparation for children begins in the first grade. Students must attend 2 years of Faith Formation prior to celebrating the Sacrament. Contact the Faith Formation office for more information
