Penance (sorrow and regret for our sins and how not to do the wrong again), Confession (telling our sins to a priest), Reconciliation (entering back into a right relationship with God and with one another) are different names for the same celebration of God's gratuitous forgiveness in the Sacrament.  This is truly a sacrament celebrating God's love and forgiveness "no matter what!"

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated each Saturday from 3:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. in the Church and every Tuesday at either 3-4 PM or 7-8 PM.  Call the office (203-797-0222) to make an appointment..
