Reconciliation is celebrated each Saturday from 3:30pm until 4:30pm in Mercy Chapel. During the seasons of Advent and Lent, a special Communal Penance Service is celebrated either at Holy Angels or at St. Joan of Arc Church in Chagrin Falls. Reconciliation is also always available by request from any of the priests at the parish.
In preparation for First Eucharist, our second grade children celebrate Reconciliation either individually with their families or in a group as scheduled. A complete program of instruction for families is provided as part of our First Sacraments program. For more information, call the Religious Education Office at (440) 708-0808.
Rite of Penance, no. 7
The celebration of this sacrament is thus always an act in which the Church proclaims its faith, gives thanks to God for the freedom with which Christ made us free, and offers its life as a spiritual sacrifice in praise of God’s glory, as it hastens to meet the Lord Jesus.
