Penance

The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as Penance, or Penance and Reconciliation) has three elements:

  • conversion,
  • confession, and
  • celebration.

In it we find God's unconditional forgiveness; as a result we are called to forgive others. (Copyrighted material used with permission of Franciscan Media.)

Confessions at Immaculate Conception are heard in English, Spanish and Italian from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. every Saturday, First Friday and the eve of Holy Days in the Upper Church.
