Confession

The Sacrament of Reconciliation with individual confession with Father Tudgay is held every Monday from 5:30-7pm. **Please note -- Each Monday in April several of our Second Graders will be receiving their First Reconciliation in the church from 5:30-6:30pm.**

Rather than using the confessional in the Church, Father Tudgay has set up a make-shift confessional in the meeting room at the back of the Conlan Center atrium. Enter through the front doors of the Church to spend some time in prayer and to take advantage of the sacrament of reconciliation and healing. 

Helpful Information…

  1. Know what it is you want to confess. Spend some time reflecting on your life, and examine your conscience so you know why you need God’s forgiveness.
  2. Find a confessor you’re comfortable with. If you want more anonymity that you think you’ll get with a priest at your own parish, go to a neighboring parish. Lots of people do.
  3. If you have lots to say, or if you will want more than a five minute conversation, don’t just get in line on a Saturday afternoon. Call a priest and make an appointment. It’s better if you don’t feel rushed.
  4. Relax. If it’s been a while, or if you’re nervous, or you don’t remember how to proceed, just tell the priest. He’ll reassure you, and walk you through the process.
  5. “I don’t remember the Act of Contrition.” Not to worry. After you receive your penance, and before the prayer of absolution, you need to pray an Act of Contrition. If you don’t have one memorized, you can say a prayer in your own words telling God you’re sorry for your sins, and that with his help you’ll try to do better.
  6. Go regularly. Many people find it helpful to see the same confessor every few weeks. With regular confessions, particularly face-to-face, your confessor can help you look at the patterns of your life, not just individual sins.
