Forgiven: The Transforming Power of Confession

Saturday, December 1, 11:30-4:30

 Back by popular demand! Prepare for Advent by attending this informative and inspiring half-day workshop on the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Learn how to make the most of this Holy time with Jesus.

In this half-day workshop, you will:

  • Learn what the Church teaches about the sacrament of Reconciliation and how it connects to Scripture, Catholic Tradition and God’s passionate desire to be with you.
  • Hear other people’s stories about the power of confession and the difference it makes in their faith lives.
  • Watch a practical walk-through to see what happens in the confessional.
  • Learn how you can make the most of this Holy time with Jesus.

11:30-12:00 – Registration and Fellowship

12:00-1:20 – Session 1: Where Are You?

God is a loving Father who seeks us out when we sin. In this session we will learn how God uses our feelings of guilt to get our attention and show us that something needs to change.

1:30-2:50 – Session 2: An Encounter with Mercy

We encounter Christ himself in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. In this session, we will learn how Jesus – through the sacrament – gives us powerful grace to battle temptation and sin.

3:00-4:20 – Session 3: Embraced in Mercy – The Rite Explained

In this session you will learn how to prepare for Confession by making an examination of conscience. You will also learn what to expect in the Confessional – what to do, what to say and when to say it!

There is no charge for this workshop but a free will offering will be taken.

Please pre-register to help us plan.
