I am grateful for God’s love and forgiveness... More
Parish Reconciliation Service
On December 19th at our 7:00 p.m. Parish Reconciliation Service, we will have the opportunity to tell God we are sorry and we will be assured of God’s forgiveness. With the help of 14 priests we approach a confessor and say,
“I am grateful for God’s love & forgiveness even when I…”
We mention anything major and other areas of our lives (sin) that keep us from God’s love. You need not go into a lot of detail. The priest doesn’t counsel or lecture but provides forgiveness through the ministry of the Church. This part goes quickly. When you have celebrated the Sacrament of Reconciliation you will go to the Blessed Sacrament room for the concluding rite with the Deacon. Papers for this rite will be provided by the Deacon for your use.
Just as when the prodigal son returned home there was a party we will also conclude with a party in the social hall with for wine, cheese, cookies,and punch. If you have not experienced this type of service before you are in for a treat! Be sure to invite your families and friends!
