Penance

“BE AT PEACE AND KNOW YOU ARE LOVED”

 

Penance

The healing Sacrament of Reconciliation and it’s gift of sanctifying grace is one of two Sacraments of healing.  The Church requires that we receive this Sacrament once per year, but you are encouraged to participate in this Sacrament as often as possible.

The current confession schedule at Saint Katharine Drexel Church is as follows:

Sundays at 5 pm

Wednesdays at 6 pm

Fridays at 8 am

Saturdays at 3 pm


For Advent, there are three opportunities to visit local parishes for confession with one of 7  diocesan priests from the deanery. This is not a penance service because of the increase in COVID-19 cases this fall and winter season. This will be an opportunity to come for individual confession with minimal contact.

Social distancing, mask wearing guidelines and sanitization will be followed.

Sunday December 6th from 2 to 4 PM at Saint Theresa’s Parish in New Cumberland

Sunday December 13th from 4 to 5:30 PM and 6:30 PM at Good Shepherd Parish in Camp HIll

Sunday December 20th from 2 to 4 PM at Saint Katharine Drexel Parish in Mechanicsburg
