"The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe in the gospel." (Mark 1.5) "Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labours for their conversion." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1422) The Sacrament of Penance is celebrated on Saturdays from 3:30 pm to 4:00 pm, on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:00 am to 9:20 am and Thursdays from 5:00 tp 5:20 pm when there are no funerals scheduled. In Advent and Lent addition celebrations are held with several priests.
