In the Sacrament of Penance, the love and mercy of the Lord Jesus is made manifest in the forgiveness of sins, thereby reconciling the penitent with God and with his Church. Like all the sacraments, Penance is received by Catholics, or those about to become Catholics. If you have an interest in becoming a Catholic, please contact the Cathedral Office, or any of the priests.
In this sacrament, a penitent confesses their sins to the priest, and, with an expression of contrition on the part of the penitent, the priest is able to grant sacramental absolution, the forgiveness and reconciliation of God.
Our “confessionals” are in the south transept of the Cathedral (to the right of the high altar), and a priest is available there at the times listed below. However, you may see a priest at any time, even anonymously, by making an appointment with the Cathedral Office or with any of the priests at any time.
