The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession)

Though we know that God forgives us whenever we turn to him in penitence and faith, it is sometimes helpful to engage with a more intensive process of self-examination and to hear God’s forgiveness spoken aloud, knowing own specific failures have been forgiven. In a place where reconciliation is integral to all that we do, it makes sense to enjoy the full riches of the sacraments that Christ has entrusted to his Church. There will be a priest ready to hear confessions in the Millennium Chapel on Shrove Tuesday, 28th February, before Evening Prayer from 4.30 or on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of Holy Week, from 6 pm to 7 pm, also in the Millennium Chapel. At other times, or for more information, please speak to Canon Kathryn.
