The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (or PENANCE) speaks to us of God’s unconditional forgiveness and love.There are three elements: conversion, confession and celebration. When we pray the Lord’s Prayer we ask God ‘to forgive us our trespasses (=sins) as we forgive those who trespass (=sin) against us. So when we are conscious of having sinned we should not hesitate to want to make amends or say sorry and to tell God and seek his pardon. For those preparing for First Holy Communion and for Confirmation they will also celebrate this Sacrament as appropriate.
CONFESSIONS ARE USUALLY HELD AT 5.30PM EACH SATURDAY IN CHURCH but can be arranged at other times too by appointment with Fr James.
