The Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known by other names such as Penance or Confession), is a sacrament of healing. It is the sacrament through which our post-baptismal sins are forgiven. In the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Jesus, acting through his ordained minister, the priest, forgives sins and bestows grace on his disciples.
Dates and Times for Reconciliation
Here at Guardian Angels the Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated every Saturday afternoon at 3:00pm or by appointment. Communal celebrations of the sacrament are celebrated through the vicariate during the Advent and Lenten seasons. The places, dates, and times of these communal celebrations will be announced at Mass as well as being listed in the parish bulletin.
