Out of his great love, Jesus instituted this sacrament through which a sinner who is sorry receives pardon and peace and is restored to the fullness of grace with God. Confession is a very intimate experience. Even in a communal reconciliation service that you might attend during Advent, Lent or a retreat, individual confessions are private. The Catholic Church maintains, however, that there is also a social aspect to sin. Sin not only affects our relationship with God, sin also alienates us from other people and the Church.
Confessions are heard from 3.45 until 4.30 PM, Saturdays, and by appointment. For further information, please contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org, or, 504 340 0444.
