Reconciliation (Confession)

Sacrament of Reconciliation:  

Saturday 3:00pm - 4:00pm and Thursday 5:00pm - 6:00pm

The Sacrament of Reconciliation (also called Confession or Penance) is the celebration of God’s forgiveness of our sins. Through penance, the faithful receive pardon through God’s mercy for the sins they have committed. This means that no matter how far a person may wander from God, they may always return to the unblemished state they’ve strayed from. St. Charles offers Reconciliation during the times listed above, or by appointment through the Parish Office, to celebrate this powerful sacrament.  

If you have a child you wish to prepare for the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion, more information may be found under First Reconciliation and First Communion under Know Christ.
