Reconciliation is held every Saturday in the Church from 3:30pm to 4:30pm, and by appointment at the Rectory.
Parents, please enroll your child in Parish Religious Education (PREP) or Our Mother of Providence Regional Catholic School in First Grade to prepare him/her to receive First Reconciliation.
There are two Sacraments of Healing, one being the Anointing of the Sick, and the other is the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Reconciliation (also known as Confession and Penance) is for spiritual healing. Only God’s grace can heal our spiritual wounds, our “sins.” Sin weakens a person, as well as the person’s relationship with God and neighbors. It wounds the spiritual well-being. If left unattended, it will affect the grace that brings about peace to the soul.
Only a priest or a bishop has the power and authority to absolve sin in the name of Jesus Christ. The priest is bound under the severest penalties to maintain absolute secrecy about any sins revealed to him in confession.
