Come Home for Easter- Communal Penance Service[title] 

In the Sacrament of Reconciliation we are forgiven by God, reunited with the Church, and renewed in our baptismal purity. We invite you to experience the love of Christ through this sacrament at our Communal Penance Service on Tuesday, April 16 at 12:10pm. More than fifteen priests will be available for confessions in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, German, and other languages. Please join us as we acknowledge that we are all sinners in need of preparing our hearts for Easter.
