What is the Sacrament of Reconciliation/Confession
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the most unique and
beautiful aspects of Catholicism. Jesus Christ, in His abundant love
and mercy, established the Sacrament of Confession, so that we as
sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and
the Church. The sacrament “washes us clean,” and renews us in Christ.
“Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has
sent me, even so I send you.’ And when he had said this, he breathed on
them, and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the
sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are
retained’” (John 20:21-23).
Reconciliation is available at the Church of St Kieran - 5-5.45pm Saturday or by appointment
St Kieran's is located at 2 King Street Manly Vale
