Lenten Day of Reconciliation


7:00 p.m. in St. Cecilia CES Library


Confession heals, confession justifies, confession grants pardon of sin,

all hope consists in confession;

in confession there is a chance for mercy.

–St. Isidore of Seville

Parents, please make note of the following:

All the children that will be receiving the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion, or Confirmation this year (2015-2016) should pick up their Passports this weekend, October 4th, or next weekend October 11th. They will be available before and after both Masses, 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. Please have your children see our Youth Minister, Stefania Lista, to obtain their passport.
