The Sacrament of Reconciliation

"Jesus said to them again, 'Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.' And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, 'Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.'" (John 20:21-23)

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a unique and beautiful aspect of the Catholic Church that allows us, as sinners, to obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and the Church. (

In addition to seasonal Reconciliation services during Advent and Lent, the Sacrament of Reconciliation is also offered every Saturday morning from 8:30am-9:30am in Saint Joseph Church. If you would like to make an appointment with a priest to receive this sacrament at another time, please contact our Parish Center at 574-234-3134.
