Penance is the Sacrament whereby an individual is reconciled to God through the confession of sins to a priest. It is obligatory for all who have fallen into mortal sin, but is highly recommended even for venial sins. It is also known as Confession or Reconciliation.
To learn more about this Sacrament, see the official Catechism of the Catholic Church nos. 1422-1498
How to receive this Sacrament:
The hours for confession are posted in the weekly bulletin (see the link to the bulletin on this website). One can also make a private appointment. The penitent must first make an examination of conscience and be truly sorry for one’s sins, together with having a firm purpose of amendment. However, those who are uncertain may still approach the priest for spiritual guidance.
