“Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon through God’s mercy for the
offense 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 prayer labors for their
conversion” (Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, #11 ).

The Sacrament of Penance is offered at the Cathedral on Wednesday, 11:15-11:45 a.m.; and
Saturday, 4:00-5:00 p.m. Communal celebrations of Penance are scheduled during Advent and Lent.
