Reconciliation

Sacrament of Reconciliation

Every Saturday from 3:30 to 4:30 P.M.
Monday, Thursday, Friday after the 9:00 a.m. Mass.
If you are not able to come for Confession during regularly scheduled times, feel free to contact Father by phone (parish office: 294-4696) or by email frjoemack@stpaulcc.org to set up a time.

It may have been a while since your last Confession. This is what to do in Reconciliation:

  1. First it is always a good idea to do an Examination of Conscience. Here is a link to the USCCB website that can help you with that. http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/sacraments/penance/
  2. Enter the confessional and make the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
  3. Bless me Father for I have sinned, it has been (tell Father how long ago) since my last Confession.
  4. Then Confess your sins.
  5. Then Father will give you Penance and you will say an Act of Contrition. My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong, and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Amen.
  6. Father will give you Absolution and you leave the Confessional to do your Penance.
