Reconciliation

Freedom from Sin

The Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as Confession or Penance) is offered by private appointment at the Franciscan Renewal Center and may be personally scheduled with a priest by calling the Front Desk at 480.948.7460.

Communal Reconciliation is offered seasonally during Advent and Lent. Watch for details in your Sunday bulletin.

The forgiveness of sins involves four parts:

  • Contrition: a sincere sorrow for having offended God
  • Confession: announcing our sins by speaking about them—aloud—to the priest
  • Penance: the priest imposes in reparation for our sins
  • Absolution: the priest speaks the words by which “God, the Father of Mercies” reconciles a sinner to himself

Act of Contrition

“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, do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.”

    All current safety protocols apply, including mandatory wearing of face masks, physical distancing, and sanitizing hands upon entering the church. The Reconciliation Chapel may or may not be used. If not, another suitable place will be designated. The church must be prepared for the 5 pm Mass, which is why confessions will end promptly at 4 pm and not all parts of the church may be available for prayer from 3 – 4 pm. Please note that this is a trial period, and after several weeks, we will review and make any needed adjustments.
