The Sacrament of Confession, also called the Sacrament of Penance or Reconciliation, is available on Saturdays from 4:00 to 5:00 pm or by appointment. There are special penance services during Advent and Lent, and special opportunities for the school children to go to the Sacrament. Confessions are also often heard during Holy Hours as well.
Opportunities for the Sacrament of Confession at Blessed Sacrament Church during the Year of Mercy: Saturdays 4:00-5:00 p.m., Mondays during the 7:30 Holy Hour until 9:00 p.m.
Our Holy Father, Pope Francis on Confession"Do not be afraid of Confession! When one is in line to go to Confession, one feels all these things, even shame, but then when one finishes Confession one leaves free, grand, beautiful, forgiven, candid, happy. This is the beauty of Confession! I would like to ask you — when was the last time you made your confession? Two days, two weeks, two years, twenty years, forty years? And if much time has passed, do not lose another day. Go, the priest will be good. Jesus is there, and Jesus is more benevolent than priests, Jesus receives you, he receives you with so much love. Be courageous and go to Confession!"
-Pope Francis, General Audience, Feb 19, 2014
