“Confession catches the sinner in his fall away from God… It makes visible the fact that the Church turns to all sinners… I have been baptized, but I do not live according to the rule of baptism. I have been confirmed, but I am no apostle of Christ. I do attend Mass, but it remains incomprehensible for me… Saints are shown to me, but I am simply not one… But if I am told that the confessional is reserved for sinners, then I know that here finally is a place for me; it is precisely I who am meant. The pew there was especially made for me.” (Adrienne Von Speyr, Confession, 93-94).

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that “children must go to the Sacrament of Penance before receiving Holy Communion for the first time. (CCC #1457) Catholics should always want to be as free from sin as possible before receiving Holy Communion.

No matter if you go to confession regularly or haven’t been in years, the Father is longing to run to you and welcome you home.

Confession is offered on Thursdays following the 11:00 am Mass to 12:30 pm or by appointment. It is also available at Holy Name of Mary on Wednesdays from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm.
