Those who approach the sacrament of Reconciliation (also called Confession or Penance), obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion.

First Reconciliation


First Reconciliation is for Catholic children who have reached the age of seven or older. This

sacrament must be celebrated before First Communion.

The preparation for this Sacrament is currently online for parents, with a home-based program using workbooks for children & parents. Cost for the workbook if $25.

Sacraments 101: Penance

Why do we have to confess our sins to a priest? Can't we just pray to God for forgiveness? If I sin but no one is affected then can I say, "no harm, no foul?"

These questions and more are answered in this edition of "Sacraments 101," a web video series geared for those who'd like an introduction or refresher course on these important, tangible Catholic experiences of God.

The Sacrament of Penance (aka Reconciliation) is one of the healing sacraments, and celebrates the loving embrace of God when we turn toward him and away form our sins.
