Many Catholics treasure the sacrament of Reconciliation. The peace of mind and soul which this sacrament imparts to us is one for which there is no substitute. It is a peace that flows from a certainty that our sins have been forgiven and that we are right with God.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered at St. Anthony's Parish on Saturdays 3:00-3:30PM, seasonally in Advent or Lent at publicized communal reconciliations or anytime by appointment.
The celebration of First Reconciliation is traditionally celebrated in the Fall of second grade. Formal instruction in the faith is recommended. Both children and parents participate in the preparation provided for by the parish faith formation staff. Questions regarding the preparation of this sacrament for 2nd graders in the religious education program or Holy Family schools can be directed to Sam Anderson, Director of Religious Education, at 563-582-0377x.230 or emails to [email protected]
