The whole power of the sacrament of Penance consists in restoring us to God’s grace and joining us with him in an intimate friendship. Reconciliation with God is thus the purpose and effect of this sacrament. The Catechism of the Catholic Church #1468
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered each Saturday beginning at 3:00 p.m. at St. Joseph Church and by appointment at St. Patrick Church. Reconciliation is also available by private appointment. Appointments may be scheduled through the Parish Office.
