CONFESSION

THE SACRAMENT OF HEALING

Here at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton we live in the awareness that the Church is not a hotel for saints, but rather a hospital for sinners. There is no offense, however serious, that the Church cannot forgive. “There is no one, however wicked and guilty, who may not confidently hope for forgiveness, provided his repentance is honest. Christ who died for all men desires that in his Church the gates of forgiveness should always be open to anyone who turns away from sin.

IMPORTANT - Confessions are available each Wednesday from 5 pm to 6 pm and on Thursday from 6 pm - 7 pm or by calling the parish office for an individual appointment.

Act of Contrition

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you, and I detest all my sins, because I dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell; but most of all because they offend you, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of your grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.
