Reconciliation / Penance
"Jesus calls us to conversion. This call is an essential part of the proclamation of the Kingdom: The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe in the Gospel... Jesus' call to conversion and penance, like the prophets before Him, does not aim at outward signs, but a conversion of heart [nos. 1427, 1430 Catechism of the Catholic Church.]" The Sacrament of Reconciliation, as known as Confession or Penance, was instituted by Christ for the forgiveness of sins, returning us to the state of grace necessary for reception of the Eucharist, the Body of Christ. This sacrament is celebrated in Saint Peter Church every Saturday from 3:15 to 3:45 p.m., as well as by appointment. We invite you to take advantage of the opportunity to experience God's love and forgiveness in this sacrament of healing.
