Penance/Reconciliation

Reflective Cross

The Sacrament of Penance, also known as Reconciliation or Confession, is that sacrament that grants the forgiveness of sins committed after baptism.  The preparation for first reception of the Sacrament of Penance occurs in the 2nd Grade and precedes First Communion.

The Sacrament of Penance is offered at The Parish of St. Catherine of Siena and St. Agnes in three forms:

  • Each week on Saturday at 3:00 PM, individual confessions are heard at St. Catherine's
  • By appointment at St. Catherine's or St. Agnes
  • The sacrament is also celebrated in its communal form (including individual confessions and absolution) before Christmas and Easter.
