"There are people who are afraid to go to confession, forgetting that they will not encounter a severe judge there, but the immensely merciful Father." - Pope Francis


This study on the Sacrament of Reconciliation will use, "Forgiven: The Transforming Power of Confession" on FORMED. "Forgiven" explores the grace and healing offered in Confession and shows how this sacrament of mercy reveals the depth and bounty of God's love. By looking at God's revelation of his mercy in Scripture and making a step-by-step examination of the Rite itself, Forgiven communicates God's invitation to each one of us to come experience his indescribable love in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Each gathering will include prayer, watching the teaching video and group discussions.

Water, coffee and tea will be provided at each session. Feel free to bring a snack to share!
