Reconciliation of a Penitent


"Reconciliation of a Penitent, or Penance, is the rite in which those who repent of their sins may confess them to God  in the presence of a priest, and receive the assurance of pardon and the grace of absolution" (The Book of Common Prayer, p. 861).


This is probably the most underutilized sacrament in the Episcopal Church.  But for those who struggle with burdensome sins that they cannot get past, the grace received in this sacramental rite gives the freedom needed for a new start.  The priests serving St. Luke's are available to offer this sacrament.  To make an inquiry, call the church office at (225) 926-5343, or email Fr. Bryan Owen.
