Penance (Reconciliation)

The Sacrament of Reconciliation can be received at the regularly scheduled times of 5:30 p.m., prior to Wednesday evening Mass, at 5:20 p.m. on Saturday evenings, prior to 6pm Mass, and by appointments made by calling the parish office at (256) 764-1885 or speaking directly to Fr. John to set a personal time for confession. First Reconciliation for second graders is usually in the winter, prior to First Communion in early May, and the child is required to prepare by attending the parish school of religion or St. Joseph Regional Catholic School. If the child is home-schooled, an exception can be made by speaking to the priest.
