The Sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as Penance or Confession, offers the grace of healing and forgiveness and the assurance that you can always come home to God.

First Reconciliation for children is celebrated through the Religious Education Program. For adults coming into the Church, First Reconciliation is celebrated through the R.C.I.A. Program.

We are currently offering the following scheduled hours for the Sacrament of Reconciliation in the Collaborative:

7:00-8:00pm at St. Paul

1:00-2:30pm at St. John

And by appointment – please call either parish office to arrange:

St. John: 781-235-0045 | St. Paul: 781-235-1060

Special Lenten Opportunity: Monday, March 11 at 7:00pm at St. Paul – Taizé Prayer Service with Opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation

Taizé is an ecumenical monastic order in Burgundy, France, with a strong devotion to peace and reconciliation through prayer, meditation, and song. Taizé welcomes young people from around the world to live and pray among the brothers, hosting up to 3,000 people during Lent and Easter.

The repetitive sung simple prayers draw you deeply into communion with the Holy Spirit and allows the clutter of your thoughts to subside. Holy Scripture and silence are interwoven in the experience in order for worshipers to be attentive to God’s voice. There will be opportunities for the Sacrament of Reconciliation throughout.

There can be no better way to prepare for Holy Week than to approach it full of God’s abundant grace.

Confessions will take place at St. Paul in the sacristy room and at St. John in the Chapel sacristy (lower level of the church.) There will be signage in both locations to direct you where to go and where to wait.
