Sacrament of Reconciliation
Did you know that the Church asks us to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation at least once a year, and certainly whenever we have committed any grave sins? When was the last time you went to the Sacrament of Reconciliation? Has it been a long time? Are you nervous about going? Are you having trouble remembering how it works? Or would you just like to know more? Don’t miss out on experiencing this wonderful, grace-filled sacrament of healing for any reason. Experience again the graces of this wonderful sacrament of healing and forgiveness Jesus lovingly gave us.
