Sacraments of Healing
“Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.’ And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained’” Jn 20:21-23
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of Catholicism. Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Reconciliation, so that we as sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God and the Church. The sacrament “washes us clean,” and renews us in Christ.
Regardless of where you have been or what you have done, be at peace. The same God who forgave Moses the murderer, Rahab the prostitute, David the adulterer, and Peter the denier will forgive you. All you have to do is seek that forgiveness with a contrite heart. The only sin God won’t forgive is the one you will not ask forgiveness for.
Reconciliation takes place at Holy Angels during the following times:
9:15 am – until concluded
and by appointment
Preparation for 2nd grade students receiving this Sacrament for the first time includes learning at school or the PSR Program, a parent session and a Retreat for both parents and students to attend.

anointing of the sick
"Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven." James 5:14-15
This sacrament is offered to any Catholic person who is suffering from a major illness, to one who will be having major surgery, to those who are significantly disabled, or to those seriously infirm due to chronic illness or old age. The sacrament may be received any number of times. Please contact the pastor and request this sacrament prior to a hospitalization or surgery, when possible. After hospitalization, contact the Pastoral Care Department at that hospital and they will call in the hospital chaplain or contact a priest on your behalf.
