Reconciliation

The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession)

Reconciliation

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is an experience of God’s forgiving love that not only absolves us from past failures but, more importantly, provides God an opportunity to gift us with grace to make better choices in our future. This sacrament also provides an individual with an opportunity, in absolute confidentiality, to discuss particular areas of personal concern with a priest. The sacrament is available every Saturday from 11 AM to noon in the Reconciliation Room at the back of the Church at St. Francis, and at 5 PM – 5:30 PM at Immaculate Heart of Mary.

An individual may also call the Parish Office at 662-342-0623 to make an appointment to speak with a priest. A Parish Reconciliation Service is celebrated in the church on an evening in Advent and in Lent.
