What is Reconciliation?
The Sacrament of Reconciliation, sometimes called the sacrament of penance or confession, is intended to assist the Christian in becoming more Christ-like through the forgiveness of sin.
This sacrament can be celebrated on Saturday from 3:30 – 4:30 pm.
It can also be celebrated before weekday Masses or by calling the Parish Office to set up an appointment.
First Reconciliation is ordinarily celebrated when a child is 7 or 8 years old. It is celebrated prior to the child’s celebration of First Eucharist. Receiving the sacrament is a culmination of much preparation at home as well as through opportunities at the parish and school.
The policy of St. Joseph the Worker Education and Faith Formation Commission is that a student has completed one year of religious education or Catholic school immediately prior to beginning this sacramental program.
