The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as the Sacrament of Penance, or Penance and Reconciliation) has three elements: conversion, confession and celebration. In it we find God's unconditional forgiveness, and as a result we are called to forgive others.
The Sacrament of Penance may be experienced through the following opportunities:
Confessions may be given weekly each Saturday beginning at 4:00 PM before the evening Vigil. The confessionals are located at the front, right side of the church.
Reconciliation by Appointment
Private reconciliation session can be requested with Father Hayatsu by contacting the Parish Office to schedule an appointment.
All Parish Reconciliation
Twice yearly, St Francis of Assisi will host an all-parish reconciliation service, once each during the Christmas and Easter Seasons. These services are scheduled in advance and announced through the monthly calendar and weekly bulletin.
