Confession (Reconciliation)

The Sacrament of Reconciliation or ‘confession’ is Jesus’ recognition that we are humans.

When we are baptized, our original sin is washed away and we receive the Grace of Christian Initiation. But Jesus knew that many would forget their Baptismal promises and may fall into sin.

Since His mercy is infinite, it is natural that He would provide a way to receive His Grace through the heartfelt and mindful confession of the sins, and a genuine want for forgiveness through penance.

Confession is being offered from:

4:30 to 5:00pm before the Tuesday 5:15pm Mass;

3:15 to 4:15pm Saturdays, or by appointment.

It is also celebrated as a community once during each Advent and Lent. 

Advent and  Lenten Penitential Services in our Deanery are held at:

  •  Holden
  • Lloydminster
  • Provost
  • Vermilion
  • Vegreville
  • Viking 
  • Wainwright.
