St. Paul in Romans 11:26 teaches “Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.” Following the teaching of Holy Scriptures, the Episcopal / Anglican tradition teaches that we receive forgiveness and freedom from our sins though Jesus’ death and resurrection. However, the Church also offers rites and rituals that remind us of the forgiveness we have received in Christ. One such ritual is the Reconciliation of a Penitent, or Confession. When our conscience is troubled, confessing our sins, and receiving an assurance of pardon can be a truly freeing experience. The classic Episcopal statement of individual confession to a priest is that “All can, some should, and none must,” meaning that it is always available to those who desire it but its not a required of anyone. Confession is available at scheduled times during the season of Lent and is also available by appointment throughout the year. For more information, please contact the Rector or church office.
