Given that sin destroys our relationship with God and undermines our relationship with other human beings, reconciliation designates that precise effect of Christ's redemption of the human race that restores our relationship with God and our human fellowship.

Christ breaks down the barriers that sin raises between us and God, and within the human community.

Our conversion from sin and reception of divine mercy are continually renewed by confession. Serious sin separates us from the body of the Church, and sacramental Confession reconciles us with God and the community of his people.

This sacrament is also referred to as the sacrament of Penance or Reconciliation.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is held on:

  • A priest will be available 30 minutes prior to every weekday & weekend Mass for 20 minutes (unless Adoration follows Mass in which Confessions will be available during Adoration). 
  • On 1st Fridays, Confessions are available 8:00am-9:00am, 2:00pm-3:00pm, and 7:00pm-8:00pm during Adoration at St. Michael.
  • Or by appointment, call the Parish Office 765-647-5462 to get in touch with a priest.

"And when [Jesus] had said this, He breathed on them and said to them, 'Receive the holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained'” (John 20:22-24).
