Reconciling us to God, it is a great source of grace, and Catholics are encouraged to take advantage of it often.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church refers to the
Sacrament of Confession as the Sacrament of Penance.
Penance expresses the proper attitude with which we should approach the sacrament-- with sorrow for our sins, a desire to atone for them, and a firm resolve not to commit them again.
We are given the opportunity to partake in this wonderful
gift of mercy and forgiveness before every Mass offered at St. Thomas by the Sea.
Saturday ∙ 4:00 – 4:45pm and 30 minutes before every scheduled Mass.
If you are unable to make any of these times or need to go to confession please call Father Paul at (251) 981-8132 or set an appointment.
