“Bless Me Father, For I Have Sinned” A Guide To Reconciliation
Confession, penance, reconciliation. The ancient sacrament of penance is called many names but has one purpose—the forgiveness of sins. Many Catholics and other Christians are at best uncertain about the need for confession, and many are anxious about the idea of sharing their sins with a priest. Two workshops are planned to tell you more about the sacrament of reconciliation. No registration required. They will be offered:
Thursday, April 2nd from 7:00 to 8:00 PM and Sunday, April 5th from 10:15 -11:15 AM.

Presentations will be on Friday, April 3rd at 7PM at St. Mary's and Sunday, April 5th at 3PM at St. Augustine's.
