In Confession, God not only forgives your sins, but gives many other gifts as well—reconciliation with God and the Church, remission of eternal and (in part) temporal punishment from mortal and venial sins respectively, peace and serenity, and an increase of spiritual strength for the Christian battle [CCC 1496].  This gift is why we ought to make a sacramental confession regularly even if we don’t have any mortal sins to confess, but only venial sins.

Please pray Caleb Clark, Philip Duckworth, Wanda Jones, Sadie McCann, Suzanne McDaniel and Beth Savage Zito. If you know anyone who is interested in knowing more about the Catholic Church contact the parish office or contact
