Reconciliation

Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.” -John 20: 21-23

The Sacrament of Reconciliation, also called penance or confession, is the means by which a person confesses their sins before God to receive mercy and absolution. The Church requires Catholics to attention Reconciliation at least once per year after their first Reconciliation but encourages more frequent attendance to strengthen against sin and receive grace.

Guardian Angels School prepares students in 2nd grade to participate in Reconciliation alongside First Communion. First Reconciliation is required before a child can participate in First Communion. If your child does not go to Guardian Angels, or if you are new to the parish, and is of age to participate, please contact the parish office at (952) 227-4000 or info@gachaska.org to start the process.

Fr. Deziel conducts Reconciliation every Saturday from 4:00-4:30 pm in Fr. Ravoux chapel or anytime by appointment. Fr. Ravoux chapel is located inside Guardian Angels Church at the front left corner, near the sacristy.
