For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you”.  (Matthew 6:14) 

The Catholic sacrament of reconciliation (also known as penance) has three elements: conversion, confession, and celebration.  In it, we find God's unconditional forgiveness.  Typically, the sacrament of reconciliation is first celebrated in second grade prior to receiving the holy Eucharist.  First reconciliation is typically celebrated in December. 

At St. Rita, reconciliation occurs Saturdays from 3:30 to 4:15 pm or by appointment.
