"Confession is an act of honesty and courage - an act of entrusting ourselves, beyond sin, to the mercy of a loving and forgiving God."
Pope John Paul II


"Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offence committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labours for their conversion"  

CCC 1422, Catechism of the Catholic Church

If you wish to make a confession, Fr Colm will hear it at 4.30pm – before the Saturday Vigil Mass at St. Joseph’s. On arrival, please let one of the stewards know, and they will alert Fr. Colm.
