Reconciliation

confesisonal

The Sacrament of Reconciliation(also known as Confession or Penance) is celebrated Saturday afternoons from 4 to 5p.m. Although many see this Sacrament celebrated in a Confessional in the movies and on T.V., the Sacrament is celebrated in a Reconciliation Chapel face-to-face with the priest. An opportunity for the sacrament to be celebrated anonymously, like you have seen in the movies and on T.V. is still provided.  During Advent, Lent and Holy Week we celebrate communal Penance Services.  Here at St. A’s, the Sacrament is offered in English, Italian, Spanish.  At other times we invite you to call the rectory to arrange a time with one of the priests.
