Saturday's 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

From the comfort of your driver's seat, the Sacrament of Reconciliation is available to you on Saturdays.  Anonymity will be respected, safe distancing secured by orange cones, and your sins will be washed clean by Jesus.  No need to fear when Jesus offers every sinner His priceless gift of mercy. The last Saturday for Drive Thru Confession is on 5/23, then the Sacrament of Reconciliation will move to the Original Shrine Church at 3:30pm on 5/30.  See you in the line for confession!
