Lenten Reconciliation Services in Santa Cruz County

SANTA CRUZ COUNTY – Communal celebrations of the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation with individual confessions and absolution as part of the Lenten preparation for Easter Sunday on 9 April 2023, will take place at the following times and locations in Santa Cruz County. (Nota bene: This page will be updated as needed.)

“The effects of the sacrament of Penance are: reconciliation with God and therefore the forgiveness of sins; reconciliation with the Church; recovery, if it has been lost, of the state of grace; remission of the eternal punishment merited by mortal sins, and remission, at least in part, of the temporal punishment which is the consequence of sin; peace, serenity of conscience and spiritual consolation; and an increase of spiritual strength for the struggle of Christian living”.
