A Community Parish in the City


“Catechesis for the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation first depends on the person’s acknowledgment of God’s faithful love, of the existence of sin, of the capacity to commit sin, and of God’s power to forgive sin and reconcile the sinner with himself and with Church. “If we say, ‘We are without sin,’ we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” The normative point of reference for catechesis for the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation is the Rite of Penance.” (National Directory for Catechesis, #36, Bl)

Preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation for children in the fifth grade will begin in October on the second and fourth Sunday of the month from 8:50am-9:50am in the parish rectory. Classes will end on Sunday morning December 8th.

Please call the parish rectory on 313 532-1211 for more information and to register your child.
