Fr. Bill, Fr. Joe, and Msgr. Tracy, as well as the parish staff, extend their sincere “Thanks” for all of the Easter blessings, wishes, cards, baked goods, and gifts received this Easter season. Our thankfulness also extends to our many parish ministries and devoted parishioners who by their time, talent, and treasure made the Lenten season, Easter Triduum, and this Easter season so blessed, beautiful, and meaningful. It definitely does…”take a village.” Easter blessings!

Reconciliation & Healing
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is God’s gift to us so that any sin committed after Baptism can be forgiven. In confession we have the opportunity to repent and recover the grace of friendship with God. It is a holy moment in which we place ourselves in His presence and honestly acknowledge our sins, especially mortal sins. With absolution, we are reconciled to God and the Church.
Reconciliation is offered every Saturday and by appointment.
