The Sacrament of Reconciliation (or Sacrament of Penance or Confession) is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of being a Catholic. Jesus Christ established the Sacrament of Confession, so that we as sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and the Church. The Sacrament “washes us clean,” and renews us in Christ.
In our Parish, Catholic children usually make their First Reconciliation at age 7. They prepare for this through the Children’s Sacramental Program.

Sometimes, people hesitate to go to Confession because they have forgotten how to do so. The Knights of Columbus (New York) have published a step-by-step guide to the Sacrament and how to prepare for it. Please click here to download the Guide.
