Lent is a Time for Renewal

Starting today, Fr. Steve will be offering the Sacrament of Reconciliation to our students in grades 2-8. Confessions will be heard on the following two Thursdays as well. We will start with the middle school students and work in descending order.

All Catholic students are encouraged to attend, even if it has been a while since their last confession. Students will be provided with a two-page guide (please attach the guide here) to help them prepare for and celebrate the sacrament. Please take some time to encourage your child to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation when it is offered and help them to complete an examination of conscience in preparation.

Lent is a great time for us as adults to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation as well. The sacrament is offered every Saturday at Sacred Heart Church from 3:00-4:30 and on Wednesdays from 8:00 to 8:45 am during Lent. If you would like to know more about the importance of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, I recommend this video by Fr. Mike Schmitz.
