The Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1484 says: "Individual, integral confession and absolution remain the only ordinary way for the faithful to reconcile themselves with God and the Church, unless physical or moral impossibility excuses from this kind of confession." There are profound reasons for this. Christ is at work in each of the sacraments. He personally addresses every sinner: "My son, your sins are forgiven." He is the physician tending each one of the sick who need him to cure them. He raises them up and reintegrates them into fraternal communion. Personal confession is thus the form most expressive of reconciliation with God and with the Church.
At Sacred Heart the priest makes this sacrament readily available to all. In addition to our scheduled weekly celebrations on Tuesday: 6:30 to 6:55 P.M., Saturday: 9:00 to 9:25 A.M. and 7:00 to 7:25 P.M. there are penitential services in Advent and Lent made available for the parishioners.
Confessions are also heard by appointment seven days a week.
