WHY WE CONFESS: Rediscover Mercy!  

Why do we confess to a priest?  What is the difference between mortal and venial sin?  How can I be certain that God has forgiven me?  This Advent, the diocese will be releasing a second study series on our Catholic Faith.  The new study, entitled Why We Confess:  Rediscover Mercy, is focused on deepening our understanding of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  This study is a 3part video series which includes a practical guide on making a good confession, as well as Q&A sessions with Dr. Brant Pitre and Fr. Mark Toups.  This study will be available online for all parishioners beginning Sunday, December 3rd, the First Sunday of Advent.  Learn more and sign up on our diocesan website at
