Sacrament of Penance
"The whole power of the Sacrament of Penance consists in restoring us to God's grace and joining us with him in an intimate friendship. Reconciliation with God is thus the purpose and the effect of this Sacrament. For those who receive the Sacrament of Penance with a contrite heart and religious disposition, reconciliation is usually followed by peace and serenity of conscience with strong spiritual consolation" (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1468).
St. Anthony and St. Mary parishes offer the Sacrament of Reconciliation regularly on the days and times listed below or by appointment.
Please check the parish calendar to confirm dates and times.
5 pm on Monday-Friday
12 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday
Nothing! Those are all different names for the same Sacrament. The different names highlight a different aspect of the Sacrament: reconciliation focuses on how our relationship with God is restored; penance focuses on our action to make reparation for our sins; and confession focuses on the act of admitting our sins before God.
