Annunciation of the Lord

First Penance

Background

God's love with His infinite mercy forgives us.  The church celebrates God's forgiveness in the Sacrament of Penance.  We examine our conscience to ask God's forgiveness and work toward a life of goodness.  Celebrating the Sacrament of Penance places us in communion with God and community.  This allows us to grow in faith, love and peace with God and neighbors.
