Through penance, the faithful receive pardon for the sins they have committed and are reconciled with the Church community.
Every parishioner is encouraged to celebrate the sacrament of Reconciliation/Confession regularly and especially in preparation for the two major feasts of the liturgical year — Christmas and Easter. During the liturgical seasons of Advent and Lent (a time of preparation for these feasts) special reconciliation services are scheduled for all parishioners.
In light of the social distancing restrictions, Christ Cathedral will not have a communal penance service this year, but rather extend the hours of confession and the number of priests available for confession:
Friday, December 18, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Saturday, December 19, 8:30 am – 10:00 am
