The Sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as Confession or Penance, is a beautiful expression of the infinite mercy and love that God has for all of us. It is a healing remedy for our sinfulness, calling us to discover the struggles that cause sinful acts and present them to God in the presence of the priest. In the Sacrament or Reconciliation, the penitent, that is, the one seeking forgiveness, meets one on one with a priest to confess their sins. With sincere contrition and intent to not sin again, they will receive formal absolution and often pastoral encouragement concerning the Christian struggle with sin.
All adult Christians are encouraged to consider approaching this sacrament at least twice a year especially during Advent and Lent.
Confessions can be made on:
· Sundays, 30 minutes before all masses beginning with the 7:30 am mass
Depending on availability, a CTK priest may also provide the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation by appointment or as requested by the homebound, the sick, and the dying. Please call the Parish Office at 633-0280 for emergencies and special needs.
· First Saturday confessions, 7:30 am to 8:30 am, Main Church confessional rooms, by Frs. Mathew and Michael.
