The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as the Sacrament of Penance, or Penance and Reconciliation) has three elements: conversion, confession and celebration. In it we find God's unconditional forgiveness, and as a result we are called to forgive others.

As Catholics, we believe that Confession is a visible, sacramental ritual of forgiveness, and we are required to partake of it at least once a year. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered at Sacred Heart weekly on Saturdays - for current Confession times, click here; or by appointment. Please contact one of our priests for an appointment at 309-762-2362.  Keep in mind that we have Reconciliation Services and special times for Confessions during the Advent and Lenten seasons.  Watch the bulletin for details.
