Reconciliation

Reconciliation (Penance) celebrates and reminds us of God’s mercy and helps us to experience divine forgiveness, to forgive ourselves and to become reconciled with others.

Not only does it the Sacrament of Penance free us from our sins but it also challenges us to have the same kind of compassion and forgiveness for those who sin against us.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated on Saturdays 1 to 2PM and 4:45-5:15 PM and any time by appointment. 

First Penance

In accord with the guidelines established by the Archdiocese of Newark, children must receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation before receiving their First Communion.  The Sacrament of Reconciliation is ordinarily administered during the season of Lent to our second grade students who have been given the appropriate religious instruction.  No one can be presented for their First Reconciliation without a valid Baptismal Certificate.
