When are Confessions held at St. Mary-St. Catherine of Siena parish?

Usually, Fr. Ronan is available in Church to hear confessions on Saturdays between 3:30 and 3:45PM except on Holy Saturday.  Periodically, we have a communal penance service after which a number of priests are available to hear individual confessions.

Can I go to confession at times outside of the regular schedule?
Yes. Confessions are available by appointment by calling our Pastor, Fr. Ronan at the Parish Center at 617-242-4664.

What do I need to do to make a good confession?
Take some time beforehand to review your life and identify any sins you have committed. Any serious sins you recall should be confessed with repentance and a sincere sorrow for sin. The priest will give you a penance, which is a prayer or act that allows you to show your repentance. There is a brief prayer, an act of contrition that expresses your sorrow for sin. The priest concludes by giving you pardon/absolution.

Lent, 2018: During the Wednesdays of Lent, beginning February 21st, a priest will be available to hear confessions from 6:30 to 8:00 PM at the Parish Center, 46 Winthrop Street.
