The sacrament of reconciliation waits to set you free.


There is no sin so great that God will not forgive a person who is sorry for his or her wrongdoing. We encourage you to stop trying to fix yourself and offer your confession to Jesus through the ministry of a priest. Never doubt the depth of God’s merciful love for you! Admitting aloud your wrong and your sorrow is part of the process, but God established this sacrament to give us so much more: freedom, peace, insight, and power to live well.

The Light Is On for you! Many parishes in southern Minnesota are setting aside the weekend of March 29-31, 2019 to extend hours where reconciliation is available, but don’t wait. The sacrament is available at least once a week and also by appointment. Look up your closest parish today.



Has it been a long time since you’ve received the grace of the sacrament of reconciliation? Do you need help remembering how and why we go to confession?
