English Penance Service

Twice a year we provide a communal penance service for you, Advent and Lent. This is “confession.” But when we sin we sin within the context of our daily life. Our sins have an effect on those around us, those we work with, and most especially within our family. By attending a communal penance service we recognize this and pray together for reconciliation with our fellow Catholics, our parishioners and our family. We provide a scripture element to it, an extensive Examination of Conscience, and then you have the opportunity of confessing to any of the 10 priests who will be here.

See “The Messenger” for the remaining dates prior to Christmas.
