The Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation

After His Resurrection Jesus said to His disciples “Those whose sins you forgive, they are forgiven.” (JohnREF_5531 20 v 23)

To receive the Sacrament of Penance (Confession) is to open one’s heart to the mercy of God, who came to earth not to condemn but to save. The Church requires that Catholics should regularly celebrate this Sacrament, especially in the season of Lent in preparation for the Pascal Mysteries. Confessions are heard in church each Saturday at 10-10.30am and 4.45-5.45pm. Before Christmas and Easter there are extra times for Confession arranged as well as Confessors from outside the parish. Confessions can be arranged by appointment at any time. Contact the Presbytery.
