The Reconciliation of a Penitent: Remembering Confession in Lent

The Book of Common Prayer contains two orders of service for private confession, known officially as the Reconciliation of a Penitent. Making a private confession is a traditional and powerful spiritual practice, and the choice to confess or not confess to a priest is governed by the old adage: All may, some should, none must. This Lent, Rev. Jessie will be reserving Sunday afternoons for hearing confessions, and will also be available by appointment. If you would like resources or help preparing for confession, or if you would like to set up a time for this please contact Rev. Jessie.
