Reconciliation

Penance, also called the sacrament of confession, reconciliation, conversion and forgiveness, provides for the forgiveness of sins committed after baptism and results in reconciliation with God and the Church.

Examinations of Conscience

Catholics prepare to receive the sacrament of penace by examing their consciences in light of the Word of God. Following are some guidelines for examinations of conscience.
       
           
  First Reconciliation
The norm in our Diocese is to celebrate this sacrament in the second grade. However, parents can decide to defer to when they think their child is ready. Families learn of God,s wonderful mercy and healing grace through the celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The key here is the change of heart necessary to make peace with those who have been hurt by actions or lack of appropriate action.
