Reconciliation

One of the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church, the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation has been commonly called Penance, Reconciliation, or Confession.

At Our Lady of Grace, there are brochures outside the confessionals that can guide you in what sin is, and how you can receive the sacrament of Reconciliation.

To receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation the first time, you must attend classes through Faith Formation.

Anointing of the Sick

The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, formerly known as Last Rites or Extreme Unction, extends the care that Jesus showed for the bodily and spiritual welfare of the sick.

The sacrament conveys several graces and imparts gifts of strengthening in the Holy Spirit against anxiety, discouragement, temptation, and conveys peace and fortitude.
