Confession, or the Sacrament of Reconciliation, is the sacrament by which a person confesses his or her sins to a priest and receives absolution. It is a sacrament instituted by Christ so that any sin confessed by a penitent person can be forgiven.
From the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults:
In confession we have the opportunity to repent and recover the grace of friendship with God. It is a holy moment in which we place ourselves in his presence and honestly acknowledge our sins, especially mortal sins. 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. “In him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).
Confessions are heard in the Church on Saturdays between 3:30 – 4:15 pm, or anytime by appointment.
You can also make an appointment with a priest by calling the parish office at 401-884-2105.
