“Three things are required for a sin to be mortal: serious matter, full consent, and full knowledge” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1858). Even the baptized are not free of the frailty and weakness of human nature, nor the inclination to sin. The Sacrament of Reconciliation invites you to experience the love and mercy of God. We welcome you to receive this Sacrament, whether it’s been two months or two years since your last Confession. The Catholic Church encourages frequent celebration of reconciliation: “Confession helps us form our consciences, helps us resist temptation, allows us to experience the healing touch of Christ, and helps us progress in the life of the Spirit” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1458). We invite you to join us at St. Anne for this sacrament of penance and healing. Confession is available Wednesday through Friday from 5:00 pm – 5:20 pm and Saturday from 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm. Confession is also available Friday by appointment. Please call the parish office at 206.282.0223 to schedule.
