The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession)

February 22, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Event Series Event Series (See All)

Clergy are available for confession and pastoral counsel on Ash Wednesday. This page contains some an overview of confession in the Episcopal Church. For a more robust discussion of confession, see this thoughtful article from the Society of St. John the Evangelist.

Event Details

What: Confession is an invitation to encounter God’s extraordinary grace and forgiveness in a confidential, one-on-one conversation with a priest.

Who: Anyone! In the Episcopal Church, we say, “all may, some should, none must” when it comes to Confession.

When: Anytime that you feel trapped by guilt or are tempted to think that you are unforgivable. The season of Lent is, historically, a popular time to seek out Confession, but Confession is available by appointment year-round with any member of the clergy staff.

Where: On Ash Wednesday, clergy are available for Confessions on a walk-in basis in the Chapel of Grace.

Why: Because God’s forgiveness is greater than our own sins – but we so often forget it. Confession reminds us that, no matter what we have done, we are God’s beloveds and that grace is available to us at every moment.

How: It can be helpful to spend some time beforehand in prayer and reflection on what is weighing on your heart and where you are most in need of grace and forgiveness. In the Confession itself, the priest will guide you through what to do – no special knowledge or memorization is required!

Give to Grace

Your gift helps Grace Cathedral realize its vision: a spiritually alive world. Learn all the many ways to give.
