HOLY NAME OF JESUS PARISH
The Sacrament of Reconciliation (the Sacrament of Penance or Confession) is an invitation for Catholics to experience the love and mercy of God the Father through the ministry of priests. Catholics can experience healing through forgiveness of sins and reconciliation with God and His Church.
Individual, integral confession and absolution remain the only ordinary way for the faithful to reconcile themselves with God and the Church, unless physical or moral impossibility excuses from this kind of confession.
(The Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1484)
Catholics are always welcomed back to receive this sacrament - whether it has been two weeks or two decades since the last Confession. Often those who have gone to Confession relay experiencing peace and joy and feeling the weight come off their shoulders as they receive forgiveness for their sins. If you have not gone to Confession in a while, we want to welcome you back and take part in this beautiful sacrament of healing.

We invite you to come to our church for confession at the times listed, or contact the parish office to schedule an appointment.
For adults, we recommend watching the "Forgiven" series on FORMED.org to better prepare for receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation:
