RECONCILIATION

“Baptism does snatch us from the power of sin and death and brings us to

the new life of the children of God, but it does not free us from human weakness

and the inclination to sin. That is why we need a place where we can be reconciled

with God again and again. That place is confession.”

-YouCat 226

 

The Sacrament of Reconciliation looks to address our spiritual ailment:

the way in which, even after Baptism, we continue to be affected by

the power of sin in our lives. We bring to confession our sin, our weakness,

the moments in which we choose to turn from God rather than toward Him and His goodness.

 

When is the Sacrament of Reconciliation offered for Scioto Catholic (until September 13th)

Monday-Friday:  Following the noon Mass in the entryway at St. Mary

Saturday: Following the 9:00am Mass in the entryway at St. Mary

Saturday: 3:00-4:00pm in the Holy Redeemer Activity Center

“It does not seem like a modern thing to go to confession; it can be difficult and may cost a

great deal of effort at first. But it is one of the greatest graces that we can receive again and again in life—it truly renews the soul, completely unburdens it, leaving it without the debts of the past, accepted in love, and equipped with new strength. God is merciful and he desires nothing more earnestly than for us, too, to lay claim of his mercy. Someone who has gone to confession turns a clean, new page in the book of his life.”
