The Sacrament of PENANCE through the Rite of RECONCILIATION where we go to CONFESSION

The purpose of the sacrament is to reconcile sinners to God and the church, and to promote a life of conversion. The sacrament of reconciliation is rooted in the lifelong journey of conversion which is central to the baptismal commitment. penance/reconciliation is social and ecclesial* in its nature as well as its effects penance is an act of ecclesial* worship (as are all the sacraments) the deepest meaning of penance is conversion which goes beyond ritual to the whole of the Christian life

*Ecclesial: identifies a community as belonging to the "Body of Christ", a spiritual community

Reconciliation is available between the 8:30 and 11:00 am Masses on Sunday at St. Thomas the Apostle.
