Reconciliation is celebrated on Sunday mornings after 10am Mass at St. Lawrence.
Penance Services during Advent and Lent are announced on the schedule of special events.
Children generally prepare for their first experience of the Sacrament of Reconciliation as second graders. Preparation includes home study, a parent and child retreat day, and participation in learning stations.
Act of Contrition
I am sorry for my sins with all my heart.
In choosing to do wrong
and failing to do good,
I have sinned against you
whom I should love above all things.
I firmly intend, with your help,
to do penance,
to sin no more,
and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.
Our Savior Jesus Christ
suffered and died for us.
In his name, my God, have mercy.
