Reconciliation

The sacrament of Reconciliation is also known as Penance and Confession. In this sacrament, the priest, as the agent of God, forgives sins committed after Baptism, when the sinner is heartily sorry for them, sincerely confesses them, and is willing to make satisfaction for them. By his death on the Cross, Jesus Christ redeemed man from sin and from the consequences of his sin, especially from the eternal death that is sin's due. On the very day he rose from the dead, Jesus instituted this sacrament by which men's sins could be forgiven.

At Saint Kilian Parish, Reconciliation is scheduled on Saturdays from 3:00 pm to 3:30 pm at Saint Kilian Parish Church or by appointment with Father Bober (724.625.1665 x.2106).
