Confession & Examination of Conscience

The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) is available on Saturdays at 1:00 p.m. or by appointment.  The information below would be helpful in preparing yourself for a good confession.

Most of us anticipate making an Examination of Conscience about as much as we look forward to a root canal.  However, if we are to progress in the spiritual life, it is necessary that from time to time we stop to acknowledge our triumphs as well as our failings.  And it is important to regularly engage in this exercise by means of some tool that really addresses the circumstances of our lives.  (An Examination of Conscience that was appropriate at the age of eight is not likely to be very useful at the age of eighty.)

We are therefore making available several sample Examinations of Conscience.  There are exercises that are appropriate for children and youth, others that are intended for single adults, other for those who are married, and a number of other resources. You may view the documents on the links below:
