Confessions During The Pandemic-Confessions will be heard in the three meeting rooms down the hall to the right of the main entrance to the church in Rooms 8, 9, and 10. We will use these rooms so that the prescribed social distancing rules can be observed for your protection and ours.
We are offering an outdoor confession option for people who prefer to avoid entering the building, weather permitting. The outdoor confessional is on the front courtyard of the church on the right side.
Se escucharán confesiones en las tres salas de reuniones en el pasillo a la derecha de la entrada principal de la iglesia en las salas 8, 9 y 10. Usaremos estas salas para el distanciamiento entre una persona y otra, según recomendado, para lograr la protección de ustedes y la nuestra.
Si el clima lo permite, estamos ofreciendo una opción de confesiones al aire libre para las personas que prefieran evitar entrar al edificio de la iglesia. El confesionario al aire libre está en al lado derecho del patio del frente de la parroquia.
“In imparting to his apostles his own power to forgive sins the Lord also gives them the authority to reconcile sinners with the Church. This ecclesial dimension of their task is expressed most notably in Christ’s solemn words to Simon Peter: “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” “The office of binding and loosing which was given to Peter was also assigned to the college of the apostles united to its head.”
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of Catholicism. Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Confession, so that we as sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and the Church. The sacrament “washes us clean,” and renews us in Christ.
“Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.’ And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained’” (John 20:21-23).
